The Salvation Army San Luis Obispo Corps has been awarded a $10,000 grant from The Community Foundation San Luis Obispo County.

The grant, part of the Opportunity to Thrive initiative, will support services for low-income individuals and families, as well as the homeless population, in San Luis Obispo, Edna Valley and Avila Beach. Specifically, it will fund one-time transitional support such as rent assistance, professional attire for its clothing closet and transportation assistance.

The Community Foundation’s Len Smolburd presented the check to Salvation Army officers Lt. Henry Gonzalez and Lt. Vanessa Gonzalez in February.
