The Salvation Army in Jacksonville's clientele is up 50 percent they say to the soaring gas prices, meaning people have no money left for food.
This month already the salvation army served 1500 people that's up 500 from March. They tell us they can barely keep food on the shelves in the stock room, as boxes go out each day, serving folks in need who are unable to pay for groceries, after dealing with the price at the pump.
Volunteers say they can handle the load of clients for now, but in a few months, they wont have enough food or donations coming in to keep up.
The Salvation Army also needs donations in their Thrift Store in Jacksonville to help buy new food and necessities that will in turn go to people in need.
