God Is Our Refuge and Strength: SA Supports Newtown, CT Community

We hurt for the victims, survivors, and impacted families of Friday’s incomprehensible tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut. You are in our constant prayers during this time and throughout the approaching holidays.

The Salvation Army Southern New England Division based out of Hartford, CT is serving residents and first responders with food and beverages from a canteen at the Sandy Hook Fire Department. Care counselors from The Salvation Army are also present to offer spiritual and emotional care to anyone who needs this type of support.

Out of respect for the terrible tragedy that occurred in Newtown, CT, last Friday, all three of The Salvation Army’s World Record Bell-Ringers - Ryan Gass, Jason Perkins, and Darrell Tureskis -  agreed to share this year’s record, ending the competition at 80 hours, after holding a 27-minute long moment of silent ringing to recognize each of those who were lost that day. The Salvation Army appreciates their incredible support.

We will continue serving the Newtown, CT region as long as we are able. Please visit our blog, Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.

 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Psalms 46:1
