The Metro Detroit Women’s Auxiliary Completes Annual Easter Basket Assembly Project
The Metro Detroit Women’s Auxiliary recently completed their annual easter basket assembly project. They filled 100 baskets with candy and fun items to be distributed through The Salvation Army Metro Detroit Corps programs.
The Women’s Auxiliary was first formed in 1914 to help single mothers and their children and was officially incorporated into The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit in 1997. This group of dedicated women support The Salvation Army in a variety of ways, such as volunteering for the Radiothon phone bank, putting together personal care kits, and bell ringing during the Christmas season.
“They also do an amazing job fundraising,” says Major Judy Tekautz, Women’s Ministries Secretary for the Great Lakes Division. “They are ambassadors to our community, and our ministries have grown substantially because of their work.
With the help of its committed members, The Women’s Auxiliary volunteers are a great help to The Salvation Army all year round. Now that Easter is fast approaching these baskets are sure to brighten the day of all who receive them.
If you would like to volunteer in Metro Detroit for the Salvation Army, there are many great opportunities to do so, and you can also donate.
