What is National Salvation Army Week?

In 1954, the U.S. Congress approved a joint resolution for President Dwight D. Eisenhower to proclaim a week to recognize the humanitarian efforts of The Salvation Army, one of the nation’s largest and oldest faith-based health and human service providers. Today, with the help of more than 3.3 million volunteers, The Salvation Army serves more than 25 million Americans every year. With a presence in every zip code across the country, The Salvation Army uniquely understands the demands facing Americans in need. 

 

       

 

Our Doors are Open and You're Invited

The Salvation Army Corps Centers will open their doors to allow the community an opportunity to dive deeper in their understanding of how we ‘do the most good’ in their backyard. Free music lessons, free food boxes, youth violence prevention programs, afterschool care, rehabilitation counselling and safe outdoor spaces for the homeless are just a few of the many services provided to meet local need.

 

“Our mission at The Salvation Army is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination,” says Major Mike Dickinson, The Salvation Army Intermountain Divisional Commander. “A need for one individual may be very different to the need of another, so we are honored and thankful to provide a great number of diverse programs to serve the needs of those struggling in the Denver Metro area.”

In addition to learning more about our programs, these events will also give you an opportunity to meet other members of our community who too wish to support our mission. As a key participant and supporter of our services we would love to see you there.

See below for the events we will be hosting during Salvation Army week.
