Coming Up: National Salvation Army Week!
Get ready because National Salvation Army Week is coming up – Monday, May 10 – Saturday, May 15!
National Salvation Army Week, typically observed in the second week of May, was first declared by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954. In the proclamation, Eisenhower noted: “Among Americans, The Salvation Army has long been a symbol of wholehearted dedication to the cause of human brotherhood . . . Their work has been a constant reminder to us all that each of us is neighbor and kin to all Americans, giving freely of themselves, the men and women of The Salvation Army have won the respect of us all.”
We hope you’ll celebrate this long standing tradition with us and give us a chance to show you our appreciation for your support that has allowed us to serve in the United States for 130 years!
Everyday next week we’ll post on our national website a Salvation Army event going on around the country, and our blog will also list an interesting Salvation Army fact. We’re sure we’ll be able to make you say, “I didn’t know that,” so check back soon.
