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.
About The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army, an
evangelical part of the universal Christian 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.
