How We Work
Locally, the work of The Salvation Army is performed by Corps Officers, staff, church members, and community volunteers who help in our Thrift Stores, social service programs, and serve on the Advisory Board and the Women’s Auxiliary.
The Salvation Army can only be as effective as those behind the shield. We are proud to be a charter member of the United Way of Northwest Alabama. The United Way provides a portion of our operating funds.
Other forms of funding include special fund raising events, regular gifts from friends of the Army, donations from seasonal and monthly appeals, Family Thrift Store revenue, and gifts from Wills and Estates.
In short, you are the factor that enables The Salvation Army to fulfill its mission – Meeting human needs in Christ’s name. Thank you.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat; I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink; I was a stranger and you invited me in; I needed clothes and you clothed me; I was sick and you looked after me; I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
— Matthew 26: 35–36
On behalf of those who will benefit from your generosity, we thank you and may God bless you!
