Salvation Army off Dickinson Avenue closing for re-development

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – A place helping those who need it most is shutting its doors.

The Salvation Army mission station off Dickinson Avenue is being torn down for re-development.

Monday will be the last day breakfast will be served to those in need. Stephanie McKenzie, volunteer coordinator, said they knew this day would come, but not this soon.

“It gives people a place to meet and kind of like a little community center and they relax. And it’s a safe environment where they can come and eat,” said McKenzie.

The organization will be using a fellowship hall beside the Salvation Army on Dickinson Avenue. McKenzie is unsure when it will open.
