GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – People in Greenville can receive breakfast from the Salvation Army longer than expected, as demolition projects have been postponed.
The Mission Station off Dickinson Avenue was set to be closed Monday and torn down for redevelopment.
On Monday morning, employees were told the bulldozers will wait at least one more week, allowing them to organize another place to feed those in need.
“A lot of people are homeless, most of them [through] no fault of their own,” said Kenny Green, who eats breakfast at the Salvation Army. “I believe, you know, it’s gonna affect them greatly.”
In preparation for the demolition, only food will be served Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
The organization hopes to use a Fellowship Hall beside the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Dickinson Avenue once they must vacate the building.
