Like us, when times are difficult and the pressures of life overwhelm, you've probably prayed for change. The relief that a simple change in circumstances brings can make all the difference in the world. Many times, this change comes through a person's simple act of kindness. The Salvation Army makes change happen in the lives of others.
That is why we are asking you to remember a time when change has come in your life and make change happen in someone else's life.
With the support of friends like you, throughout the year and especially during the holidays, The Salvation Army does so much more than feed the hungry and shelter the homeless here in upstate, NY. We do the most good by using our resources to create positive, long-lasting changes in the lives of people when it is needed the most.
CHANGE COLD INTO COMFORT with emergency utility or fuel assistance.
CHANGE A LACK OF FOOD INTO NOURISHMENT with groceries and meals for hardworking parents who struggle to feed their families.
CHANGE PERIL INTO SAFETY with rent assistance, hotel vouchers or shelter for people who are homeless due to domestic violence, disasters or other unplanned circumstances.
CHANGE FRUSTRATION INTO HOPE with job referrals and job skills training for individuals seeking employment that will better sustain their families.
CHANGE HOPELESSNESS INTO JOYFULNESS with holiday assistance for working-poor parents who can’t provide a holiday meal or presents for their little ones.
The Salvation Army seeks to do the most good possible with your donation of time, money, and other resources.
“The Salvation Army is by far the most effective organization in the U.S. No one even comes close to it in respect to clarity of mission, ability to innovate, measurable results, dedication, and putting money to maximum use.” –The late management expert Peter Drucker
