Sign up on Thunderclap to send 150th Anniversary message!

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.

Find a National Donut Day event in the Western US!

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.

Because, donuts.

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!

Move quick or lose out

Upcoming is our Tennis Round Robin at Oakwood Country Club. We are having a silent auction during the event where you wont want to miss your chance to purchase some amazing things. I won’t ruin the surprise of what will be there, but I will say that anyone who hates the team whose logo is a star may want to come check out what will be here.


Have a great day everyone!

Shopping with someone else’s money!

Today, children from around our community took a trip to Target to buy school supplies. They were able to purchase items such as school uniforms, glue, paper, pencils, and anything you can imagine a child would need for school. The Salvation Army provided each child with a Target gift card in which the purchases were made. Any balance left over on the card was given back to The Salvation Army for future use. The children had a blast and couldn’t wait to show off all of their awesome school supplies. A little girl named Kacie couldn’t wait to show me her new Disney Princess’ lunchbox. What a joy to see the happiness in the eyes of the children. We are definitely doing the most good here.
