The Salvation Army helped more than 1.8 million people in Canada and Bermuda last year — that’s close to 5,000 people every day.
In 2012 we marked our 130th anniversary. From the beginning The Salvation Army has provided services that offer dignity and hope to some of our country’s most vulnerable people. Today we are the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in Canada.
As a leader, I want to thank you for your support. Your compassion and generosity has changed the lives of people like Patricia and Jordon.
Patricia’s sudden loss of employment forced her to cut back on food so she could keep a roof over her head. With the help of The Salvation Army, she is able to provide balanced, nutritious meals to her family— something that at one point seemed impossible.
And eight-year-old Jordan, from an abusive home situation, arrived at camp with a battered suitcase that contained one beat-up old pillow. With a new sleeping bag and some trendy clothes he felt a sense of self-worth, was able to take a deep breath and experience the joys of just ‘being a kid.’
At the end of each day, The Salvation Army has helped thousands of broken people through difficult circumstances, bridging gaps between fear and hope, and comforting those whose lives have been assaulted.
The Salvation Army believes that everyone is of immense value and deserves to be treated with dignity. Our desire is that each person we serve walks away with new hope, feeling important, worthy and respected.
We could not do what we do without friends like you. We deeply value your investment of time and resources, and we commit to wisely using your gifts to provide the help that people need most.
May God Bless You,
