This week is also a week to celebrate the Salvation Army! Salvation Army Week was first declared by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954. In his speech, President Eisenhower noted,
“Among Americans, the Salvation Army has long been a symbol of wholehearted dedication to the cause of human brotherhood. In time of war, the men and women of this organization have brought to those serving their country far from home, friendliness and warm concern. In the quieter days of peace, their work has been a constant reminder to us all that each of us is neighbor and kin to all Americans. Giving freely of themselves, the men and women of the Salvation Army have won the respect of us all.”
To see yet another way the Salvation Army has impacted your life, watch this short video and remember to thank our area Salvation Army members for being a part of the organization that brought us doughnuts!
