To the editor:

I was driving down Kickapoo Street the other day and noticed the new Salvation Army building. What I am wondering is why it isnít being used for the homeless or a womanís shelter. People have donated money so people can get help when times get tough.

I talked to a lady that went in there to see about getting some food and was turned down because it was not the right day to get food and told to go somewhere else to get help.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THAT??? GO SOMEWHERE ELSE? I think that is just WRONG. I think they need to review their policy and change it. People need help today, not next week.
