Encouragers needed For Letter Writing Campaign

What an easy way to reach out and connect to those working on the front lines! We are looking for volunteers to write encouraging notes that will be delivered with donuts to essential workers on the front lines (healthcare, police and fire) on National Donut Day, Friday, June 5.

During World Wars I and II, The Salvation Army brought hope to those on the front lines by serving nearly 9,000 donuts to soldiers every day amidst gunfire and bombs. This year, The Salvation Army will bring hope to the emergency response and healthcare workers who are on the front lines in this trying time. Volunteers can handwrite words of encouragement or gratitude on index cards (5x7 size is preferred, but not required. The deadline to drop off thank-you notes is Wednesday, June 3. Notes can be dropped off into any of our outdoor drop boxes at one of the following locations:

  • The Salvation Army - Divisional Headquarters 16130 Northland Drive, Southfield 48075 (the entrance under the red awning at the rear of the building)
