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 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.
