Kent County Annual Report 2016
As I look back on 2016, I am reminded of the many ways that God has blessed The Salvation Army’s work in Kent County. I am thankful for our volunteers – who donated more than 24,000 hours of service to help us help our neighbors in need.
I am thankful for our community – who answered the call by donating nearly 14,000 toys to support our Angel Tree Toy Drive in partnership with WOOD TV8.
I am also thankful for our Officers and employees – who provided extraordinary levels of compassion which instills hope in those within our community who needed it most.
As we plan for the days ahead, I am reminded of a quote from Abraham Lincoln: “The best way to predict your future is to create it.” I am humbled that God has once again laid opportunities to serve at our front door. These opportunities provide us with countless situations to create a future based upon helping the hungry, the homeless and the addicted.
Again, thank you for your continued support – it will serve us well in the days, weeks and months ahead. It has been my privilege to serve and uphold the work of The Salvation Army in Kent County.
