National Salvation Army week recognizes what the Salvation Army has done in communities all across the country.
The local Salvation Army hopes that events like this will help break down the barriers of the misconceptions that homeless people are of any less value or that they are scary. "We provide vouchers, so sometimes people just need their physical items, household items and clothing, so shopping here helps us support and keep that going". "Every day, right here in the Springfield area, there are innumerable individuals and families who depend on our charitable services for their basic health, safety, even survival".
Two-thirds of the Salvation Army's meals in Duluth go toward the food shelf. Each year, more than 13,665 people receive support, thanks to generous donors, volunteers, and corporate partners, Cook stated.
