Salvation Army fundraising breakfasts resume | Local News

The local Salvation Army will once again be offering its monthly fundraising “pancake and breakfast buffet” starting this Saturday.

Major Raewyn Aspeitia, the Roswell corps officer, said the tradition that was broken in early 2020 has returned.

“It’s the second Saturday of every month,” Aspeitia said. “It’s the first one. Because of COVID they hadn’t had anything, then the air conditioning and heating turned off last year.

With the decreasing severity of COVID and the building at 612 W. College Blvd. fixed, breakfast cooked by Mark Granado and other volunteers is back from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month.

The cost is rising, Aspeitia said, to ensure the breakfasts remain fundraisers for the nonprofit. For cost information or other breakfast information, people can contact The Salvation Army at 575-622-8700.

“There was a lot of support from the community. That’s why we want to relaunch it. He was already well supported,” Aspeitia said.

She added that the Salvation Army will also provide free food at the God Inspired Gathering (GIG) Christian worship service on the lawn of the Chaves County Courthouse, which begins again this Friday and Saturday.
