The Salvation Army is celebrating 150 years of service and ministry during its 2015 International Congress July 1-5. Thousands of Salvationists and friends from all over the world…
Did you know that The Salvation Army began in East London on 2 July 1865, founded by William and Catherine Booth? Today, our international church and charity meets human needs without discrimination in 126 countries worldwide. To honor our 150 years of service, we’re asking friends and supporters to join us to send an anniversary greeting via social media on July 2. We’re using Thunderclap, the “crowd-speaking” app to send out this message from multiple accounts at the same time.
Next week is a major holiday we observe here at The Salvation Army in the US. It’s not a religious holiday imbued with deep meaning and eternal significance. No, it’s National Donut Day on Friday June 5th.
In keeping with our tradition to honor this fine day by revering our nation’s veterans and eating donuts (surprise!), here’s a list of activities that are open to the public so you can make this holiday part of your life too!
