National Salvation Army Week

Giving of hope to thousands who are suffering.

Since 1954, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower proclaimed a week to recognize The Salvation Army’s positive efforts across the nation, people everywhere have been joining in the fight to provide those in need with assistance. This beneficial charity is one of the country’s oldest and largest faith-based services, committed to “Doing The Most Good” without judgment or discrimination.

Nancy Dihle joins Danielle Williams on the Arizona Daily Mix to share the importance of The Salvation Army. It is more than thrift stores and red kettles – it is a proclamation of hope to thousands who are suffering from disaster, extreme heat, domestic abuse, human trafficking, and so much more. Programs are offered for seniors, families, and youths, as well opportunities for adult rehabilitation, the homeless, with several educational programs. Join The Salvation Army during the next month to raise awareness for those in need: submit a radical new design for Bashas’ Donut Day contest!

As the well-loved organization gears up for the coming summer heat with their Red Shield Survival squad, remember that they have 15 heat relief stations around the Valley where people are welcomed in cases of excessive heat warnings. Take precautions: hats, sunscreen, and water… but if you are caught off guard by the Phoenix heat, find a Salvation Army. They are here to serve!
