WHY: National Salvation
Army Week events across the country
highlight the importance of Americans giving back to their local
communities to support their neighbors in need. 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 provides in the country, directly supporting nearly 30
million Americans each year, through a variety of programs. To learn
more about The Salvation Army visit www.SAmilwaukee.org.
The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the
church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need
in His name without discrimination for 129 years in the United States.
Nearly 30 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.
Approximately 84 cents of every dollar spent is used to support those
services in 5,000 communities nationwide. For more information, go to www.SAmilwaukee.org.
