BACKGROUND: The very first National Salvation Army Week was declared by President Dwight D. Eisenhower between November 18 and December 4, 1954 as a reminder to Americans that they should give freely of themselves.

Though the dates have changed, the work of The Salvation Army has not. Since The Salvation Army began its social service work in the United States in 1880, the organization has grown into one of the largest social service providers in the country, directly supporting nearly 30 million Americans each year nationwide, through a variety of programs.

About The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination since 1865. Nearly 33 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. Nationally, approximately 84 cents of every dollar raised is used to support those services in nearly 9,000 communities nationwide. For more information, go to www.SAmilwaukee.org.
