Programs That Help
In thisnewcentury, The Salvation Army is serving more people in the USA than ever before. They are already seeing large increases in the number of Americans seeking the basic necessities of life - food, shelter, and warmth. Approximately 30 million people received help from The Salvation Army in 2011, but the magnitude of the mission facing The Salvation Army in communities throughout the United States remains great.
Not only does the Salvation Army help collect, sort and distribute over 20,000 coats a year in our region, but they offer more services to those in need than we can list here!
Please go to www.salvationarmyusa.org for a full list of services.
