People affected by a fire in downtown Hanover are receiving support from The Salvation Army with food, clothing, and personal hygiene items.

Salvation Army Hanover Community Church Captain Wendy Crabb says some of the people affected by the blaze are being supported by The Salvation Army Food Bank. About 80 people living in the rooming house or second floor apartments are now without a place to live.

People left homeless have been placed in hotels, or are staying with friends or family. A range of agencies, including The Salvation Army, continue to assist those impacted by the fire.

“We understand this is a stressful time for those affected by this fire and we are here to assist and support residents in any way we can,” Captain Crabb said. “Residents of Hanover and surrounding areas are very generous in helping those in need and in  their support of The Salvation Army.”

Donations of food, clothing and personal hygiene items can also be dropped off at The Salvation Army, and volunteers are also welcomed to assist with food and clothing distribution.
