For over 60 years we have been sharing a week long celebration of heritage, history, achievements and future goals with our communities. The second week of May is known around the country as National Salvation Army Week. The festivities during this week of observance bring us together to look back at what we have been able to do and look ahead to what change we want to create. It is truly special time to praise those who make our work possible, bring new believers into the folds of our worship, and connect with new community partners to establish continued success and love across the country.
In 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared this week to be National Salvation Army Week. Being one of the six original United Service Organizations (USO), it was declared a week to honor and join in the Army's service mission. At the time, our work had been active across the United States for 75 years! Since then, The Salvation Army's goal has remained strong, but our methods of Doing The Most Good grown and evolved. All week long we will be highlighting these efforts to continue our work of meeting those in need and creating change. You can show your support and join us for National Salvation Army Week.
