Captains Caleb & Stephanie Senn
The Salvation Army celebrates their 150th Anniversary!
The Salvation Army, a Christian organization, has been providing spiritual ministry, emergency assistance for basic needs, and programs for children and families in Genesee County since July 26, 1893.
For 124 years, The Salvation Army of Genesee County has continued William Booth’s work by assisting with the most basic spiritual and physical needs. Families who are in the process of losing their homes to evictions or foreclosures, or residents who are struggling to keep food on the table or pay their utility or water bills know they can turn to The Salvation Army for help. Thousands of Genesee County’s residents have been helped by the Army since 1893 and tens of thousands more have helped the Army in its mission to share the love of God through service to others. Thank you for enabling us to "Do the Most Good".
