Now Available: 2011 Online Annual Report

A Time for Every Purpose- this is the theme of The Salvation Army’s 2011 Online Annual Report, now available at http://annualreport.salvationarmyusa.org/.

This verse from Ecclesiastes rings true when we reflect back on the challenges and blessings of this last year. We’re reminded – as both an organization and as individuals – of our God-given purpose to serve others during this temporal life.

We’re proud to report that, guided by God’s love and your compassion and support, The Salvation Army served 30 million Americans in 2010!

Our time to fight is always the present. The recession has created a higher demand for food services and a decline in charitable donations. Food shortages were the result, but we were still able to serve 64 million meals in 2010.

Here are some additional numbers:

5: The number of completed and opened Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Centers in 2010 – there are now 17 completed centers throughout the country!

7,675: The number of operating Salvation Army units nationwide.

$1.82 billion: Total public support – an increase from $1.66 billion in 2009.

$3.24 billion: The amount we spent serving people – an increase from $3.12 billion in 2009

82 cents: …of every spent dollar went towards Salvation Army program services.

In addition, the report includes examples of The Salvation Army’s expanded efforts in the fight against human trafficking.

We couldn’t do any of this without your support and generosity. Thank you for helping us fulfill our mission of “Doing the Most Good”.

“Through every time and for every purpose to which God has called us, The Salvation Army presses on, joyfully and with determination”

2010 Online Annual Report Now Available

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

The Salvation Army has released its 2010 online annual report, available at http://www.salvationarmyannualreport.com/.

The theme of this year’s report is “Shine” – The Salvation Army strives to be a shining light of hope in communities nationwide. As we continue to navigate through difficult economic times, we’re encouraged by the stories we hear each day from across the country. Some of these stories are shared in this report — from an after school program in St. Paul, MN; to a GED course in Tucson, AZ; a family shelter in Akron, OH and a Boys & Girls Club in Tulsa, OK.

The people you see in these videos, from teenagers to an 80+ year-old woman, are telling their real, personal accounts of how The Salvation Army has helped them turn their lives around. Their stories are truly inspiring and stand as a reminder of why we do what we do every single day.

As one of the oldest and largest social service charities in the United States, The Salvation Army provided help to nearly 30 million Americans last year alone. During our previous fiscal year, The Salvation Army:

* Served 64 million meals to people in need
* Helped nearly 1 million Americans following disasters
* Sent 180,000 unprivileged kids to summer camp
* Counseled 370,000 individuals with drug and alcohol rehabilitation

Thank you for your support that has helped make our service possible. Learn more through our annual report about The Salvation Army’s diverse programs and services utilized by those in need last year.

And please help us spread the word – Tweet, Facebook and email the report to friends, family, neighbors – anyone who might want to learn that The Salvation Army is about a lot more than thrift stores and kettles! Check us out and find more information on:
