Vote for your town, fight hunger!

Monday, April 23, 2012

Two years ago, Walmart made a generous $2 billion commitment to fight hunger through 2015 and the company is certainly keeping promises.

Walmart’s “Fighting Hunger Together” campaign makes it easy for you to join the fight against hunger and bring that charitable donation to your very own community through organizations such as The Salvation Army.

Donuts and Doughnations!

Monday, April 23, 2012

Which classic white box do you grab when you’re grocery shopping: crumb cakes, cookies, muffins, or doughnuts?

The delicious sweets of famous bakery Entenmann’s are staples for breakfast time, snack time and especially National Doughnut Day time! That’s why for the second year in a row, Entenmann’s is helping The Salvation Army celebrate the historical day, held this year on June 1st.

9/11 Volunteer Story: You can Make a Difference

Thursday, April 19, 2012

In 2001, Kristina Paider was called to serve at Ground Zero following the 9/11 attacks. She was not a first responder, a member of a relief organization, a branch of the military or a minister of faith. She was a volunteer- one of many who, compelled by a sense of familial love and compassion for those suffering in the wake of the disaster, pushed aside her personal life for a month and traveled to New York City to offer her hands and her heart to the recovery process.
