The Salvation Army building is located at 504 E Main Street in Sidney, 433-6299. They take donations of clothing and other items – just call.
Other places that take item donations:
Good Cents Store (488-5008) is located on the West end of Main Street, other side of the tracks.
** Meals on Wheels is a home delivered meal program that delivers between 500-600 meals per month in Sidney. All meals are delivered by volunteers and are prepared by Sidney Health Center (SHC). There are two routes and food is ready to be picked up from SHC Kitchen at 10:45am. It works best to have a driver and a delivery person on each route to take the meals to the homes and it takes about one hour or less. Volunteers are always needed.
The Commission on Aging office is where persons may inquire about volunteering to deliver meals; call Jodi at 433-3701
