This year has indeed been like no other. As I reflect on 2020, I’m proud of the work The Salvation Army in Alabama, Louisiana, and Mississippi has done to help our neighbors in need amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the back-to-back hurricanes we’ve experienced.
Our employees and volunteers courageously served throughout storm-ravaged areas to feed our friends and neighbors who had nowhere else to turn. Many were left feeling hopeless in the wake of natural disasters. As we turned to virtual learning and working from home due to the global pandemic, scheduled in-person activities were put on hold. Among these were in-person fellowship and summer camp, two of our most effective programs for seniors and youth. Still, The Salvation Army was there, fighting the good fight and continuing to serve those who rely on us for help.
Your support makes it possible. You help us give hope to the hopeless, food to the hungry, and shelter to the homeless. You’ve also helped rescue Christmas for families whose lives were turned upside down. Thank you for continuing to support The Salvation Army through these unprecedented times. We will continue to fight the good fight for years to come and look forward to continuing working with you to serve our neighbors in need.
May God bless you,
Major Kent Davis, Divisional Commander
The Salvation Army Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi Division
