The Bed & Bread Club is a monthly giving program dedicated to fighting hunger and homelessness throughout our community.
Summer is a time of much-anticipated joy for most children. They look forward to no homework, time at the pool or beach, and days spent playing outside with their friends. But did you know, twenty percent of American children struggle with hunger every day, and many kids who rely on free or reduced lunch go without in the summer? Food insecurity is one of the many reasons The Salvation Army's summer camps are so important.
Our summer camps, programs, and activities offer a safe haven to play sports, learn music, gain new skills, be mentored and nurture talents. More than offering fun, learning, and friendship, they also provide the assurance of daily meals.
The Salvation Army day camps, sleep-away camps, Vacation Bible School programs, and other summer activities in our community are all part of our commitment to the youth of all ages who walk through our doors every day. A commitment that continues all year round, thanks in no small part to our faithful Bed & Bread Club partners.
