Homeless in Hawaii: Four Kids Reunited with Dad

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

If you’ve ever wondered how your donations to The Salvation Army are used, this story provides the mother of all answers.

Thanks to Salvation Army supporters like you, Jake Snyder has been reunited with his four children after the kids were homeless in Hawaii (see photos). The kids – Zebulon (“Z”), 16; Emily, 15; Jake Jr., 14; and Joey, 11 – were abandoned by their mother. They spent months living in a tent city with other homeless children.

That’s the number of angels The Salvation Army reached through the wonderful support of jcpenney’s Angel Giving Tree Online system!

Through jcpenney’s support along with the loving generosity of our donors, thousands of disadvantaged children and seniors will receive a gift (or two or three) on Christmas – a much needed boost for struggling families during these hard times.

Actor and Recording Artist Robert Davi will perform his single “Mistletoe and Holly” on Wednesday’s Fox & Friends morning show.

Originally sung by crooner Frank Sinatra, his version of the Christmas classic is benefiting The Salvation Army’s 120th annual Red Kettle Campaign. The generous (and talented!) Davi is giving 100% of the proceeds from the sales of the song to The Salvation Army.
