In June of 2015, the Harrisonburg/Rockingham Salvation Army will have served the community for 90 years. Over the course of these past months The Salvation Army has asked various volunteers, Board members, clients and staff reasons for supporting The Salvation Army with their gifts of cash, material and time. From those responses a list of “90 Reasons to Support The Salvation Army” was developed. Today we are publishing five more reasons:
1. The Salvation Army is focused upon helping in practical ways those caught in poverty.
2. The Salvation Army will pick-up donated furniture and household items.
3. The Harrisonburg Salvation Army has a local disaster vehicle and teams that respond as needed to regional and national disasters.
4. The Salvation Army’s homeless shelter is a place where local churches can serve the homeless.
5. The Salvation Army is an organization that takes a non-judgmental approach in assisting people.
