Salvation Army’s annual Soup and Sandwich Luncheon postponed

This year would have marked the 41st annual Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary Soup and Sandwich Luncheon, but due to COVID-19, the annual event has been postponed.

Although it has been postponed, Salvation Army Vicksburg’s Maj. Janna Torgerson said those interested in making a financial contribution to the Salvation Army’s mission in Vicksburg should call 601-456-4444.

Torgerson said the event is postponed until October 2021.

The auxiliary is one of the largest contributors to the non-profit organization, Vicksburg Salvation Army social worker Del Minor said.

Each year, the auxiliary donates proceeds from the luncheon to be used for many of the Salvation Army’s outreach programs, including the Mission 66 Diner, Angel Tree program, Book Bag program and summer camps.

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary was organized in 1976 and its mission is to advance public awareness of the Salvation Army and facilitate service to the needy, assist in disaster relief, provide leadership in group work and fundraise in support of various Salvation Army programs.

“From staying informed with local governmental issues to hearing the stories of its people, a hometown newspaper is vital to a community. I have felt privileged to be part of a dedicated team at The Post throughout my tenure and hope that with theirs and with local support, I will be able to continue to grow and hone in on my skills as I help share the stories in Vicksburg. When asked what I like most about my job, my answer is always ‘the people.’
