Stevens Worldwide Van Lines will provide moving services to the Salvation Army for its transition to its brand new building in Bay City, Mich., on Monday, Jan. 10.
The new facility will house the Salvation Army’s chapel and soup kitchen, as well as other services. Work began last summer on the 10,517-square-foot building which is near the corner of 10th and Adams streets in Bay City.
The new building will more than double the size of the Salvation Army’s kitchen and dining areas. In the former location, the Salvation Army could accommodate about 50 people for lunches and dinners four days a week. The new facility provides seating for nearly 120 people and the organization intends to expand its meal program to six days a week.
Stevens will provide five movers and two trucks to pack and move a wide variety of office furniture, kitchen equipment, recreational equipment and other items to the new facility.
Stevens and the Salvation Army have a long and continuing relationship for both moving and philanthropic projects. Stevens is a preferred mover for Salvation Army employees nationwide and assists the agency with several local and regional projects.
