Every day, Salvation Army do gooders – whether they work here full time or support our mission in their spare time – dream up ways to create good and lasting change for people in need. We’re always working on new and existing programs, bright ideas and special projects to give people opportunities they don’t know how to make on their own. One of our favorite ways to create good and lasting change is to make sure kids from low-income families are excited about school and have everything they need to succeed.
Forty athletes from Haiti, Benin and Suriname will be guests of The Salvation Army in Redondo Beach for breakfast this week in the lead up to the Special Olympics’ opening ceremony on Saturday, July 25th. The athletes range in age from 16 to 40 years old are are staying at hotels in the Redondo Beach area. Each morning they’ll be shuttled to The Salvation Army on Beryl Street for scrambled eggs, waffles, bagels and cream cheese, and fresh fruit!
Here at The Salvation Army, we love a do-gooder! One of our favorites is Chris Paul of the Los Angeles Clippers. Paul’s family foundation is responsible for a lot of good around Los Angeles as is the very generous team he plays for. Last Friday we got to see what the Chris Paul Family Foundation and Denise Booth’s crew from the L.A. Clippers Foundation did to create an environment for learning and play at The Salvation Army in Compton, California.
