Volunteers with the Tamaqua Salvation Army have opened the doors to the center, providing meals, activities and electricity to those in need. "We have opened the center to the public," said Major Sharon
Whispell. "We will remain open as long as we can and until power is restored to the vast majority of people throughout Carbon and Schuylkill County." Volunteers stressed that the center isn't a shelter or place for sleeping. They also added that pets aren't allowed due to allergens. For more information or to volunteer at the center, call (570) 668-0410 or (570) 668-1234 anytime. Pictured organizing games and activities is Tamaqua Salvation Army volunteer Lorraine Durning.
