Happy National Salvation Army Week!

Did you know this week was first declared by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954 a mere 74 years after The Salvation Army arrived in the U.S.?

In his speech, President Eisenhower noted,

“Among Americans, The Salvation Army has long been a symbol of wholehearted dedication to the cause of human brotherhood. In time of war, the men and women of this organization have brought to those serving their country far from home, friendliness and warm concern. In the quieter days of peace, their work has been a constant reminder to us all that each of us is neighbor and kin to all Americans. Giving freely of themselves, the men and women of The Salvation Army have won the respect of us all.”
