COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The Salvation Army is partnering with a local car dealer to hand out free grocery boxes in southwestern Colorado Springs Friday.

The grocery boxes are available from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. (or until they run out) Friday at Lexus of Colorado Springs at 604 Auto Heights in the Motor City area.

Salvation Army staff will place the boxes in cars, so no contact is required. There’s a limit of one box per car, while supplies last.

Each box will contain enough non-perishable items to feed a family of four for a week, plus some perishable food like eggs, milk, and frozen meat.
