October 3, 2008, Newsletter Issue #134: The Salvation Army Pursues an International Mission

Tip of the Week

The Salvation Army is a faith-based international organization that provides a range of services designed to address the needs of people in hardship. Itprovides Addiction and Dependency Services, Health Services, Social Work, Emergency Response, and Family Tracing Services, as well as many other community development and ministry efforts throughout the world.

In the United States, the bell-ringing Santa by a red urn is the probably the most well-known emblem of the Salvation Army and its giving opportunities (Santa may be followed closely by the white receptacle for clothes donations in many suburban parking lots). In addition to these iconic presences, the Salvation Army provides a wide range of ways to contribute to its cause, many of which rely on the idea that what you no longer need or want will be of great use to someone else.

You can find lots of information about the Salvation Army's mission and services on its international web site, www.salvationarmy.org, and you can find information specific to the Army's work in the United States (and in your neighborhood) at www.satruck.com. Through that site, you can arrange donations of items such as clothing, furniture and even vehicles. You can also make a monetary donation through the site or find a local thrift shop and other local opportunities for making Salvation Army donations.
