Salvation Army Hurricane Assistance Centers set to close

BILOXI (WLOX) - Since Katrina roared ashore in 2005, the Salvation Army has helped people in South Mississippi at their hurricane assistance center.   The salvation Army has run out of money and the last two centers will close on January first.   What is called the dome at Yankie Stadium in Biloxi is in it's final days. "Over the past three years we've used all the available money" Says Salvation Army Business Manager Sally Lohrbach. The closing has two consequences, the loss of services and many Salvation Army workers will be without jobs on New Year's day. "It's sad. We're like a family" says Lohrbach.   The organization plans to build a new community center at the Yankie stadium site over the next few years.
