Collaborative donation to The Salvation Army of Langlade County

The Salvation Army of Langlade County received a $1,000 donation from Aspirus Langlade Hospital and a matching $1,000 donation from community member, Robert Arlen, in memory of his wife, Audrey Arlen, who passed on April 30, 2020.

Aspirus Langlade Hospital has been designated by The Salvation Army as an authorized location in Langlade County to distribute Salvation Army vouchers to those in need. The hospital uses these vouchers to help patients cover medication costs, hotel stays, transportation and medical equipment, such as a blood pressure cuff.

“The Salvation Army provides a vital resource to meet the needs of our community,” said Cathy Connor, Director of Emergency and Outpatient Services at Aspirus Langlade Hospital. “Departments that use this resource most often are the Clinics, Emergency Department, Cancer Center and Quality Resources. We most recently provided lodging for a patient who was here from a long distance and needed to wait for a ride home. It is a great feeling to be able to go the extra mile to care for our patients. We are grateful to The Salvation Army for providing these resources!”

The Salvation Army has now reached $55,000 of its $100,000 campaign goal, which will be used for medical needs, fuel assistance, rental assistance and more throughout the coming year. Community members and businesses are encouraged to continue donating through the end of January 2021.

If community members need rent or utility assistance, they are encouraged to call 715-623-5177. Call 715-623-5717 for more information on food, gasoline and co-pay assistance. Local businesses that collaborate to provide prescriptions include Lakeside Pharmacy, Walgreens, Antigo Eye Care Center, Antigo Vision Clinic, Edge of Night Motel, Super 8 Motel, Kwik Trip, North Central Caravan, Marty’s Shell Service and Army Field Representatives.
