When people come to The Salvation Army seeking emergency financial assistance, they receive an application to fill out. Included in the application is a voluntary questionnaire that includes just two questions.

Our ‘Brewing Hope’ series will give you insight on what assistance men, women, and children in need are seeking when they come through our doors, and what it means to them to receive a hand up and a sense of hope in their time of need.

Name: Glenn

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? I was employed, however due to the slow season I was let go. I am having a hard time trying to keep up.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? It would mean a lot to a person who has tried to do everything the right way in life. Some people have hard times in their life and I think a little help every now and then will help take the burden off of people why try to make ends meet.

Thank you for supporting the programs and services of The Salvation Army, so we can help people like Glenn find the hope they need to face another day.
