Thank You Salvation Army
My husband and I appreciate all the meals and canned goods we get from The Salvation Army. We have a very limited income. My husband is on SSI and now has cancer. I, myself am currently trying to receive SSI benefits. The Salvation Army was so good to me when my sister passed away. The staff at The Salvation Army were there for me and now they are like my family.
