Dunkin Donuts Joined The Salvation Army of West Palm Beach County to Provide Morning Treats to Local Social Workers.

West Palm Beach, Florida (April, 2021) – On Tuesday, March 30th, three Dunkin Donut locations joined The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County to celebrate National Social Work Month by treating local caregivers to morning donuts. The theme of this year’s morning give-away was “Social Workers are Essential” and highlighted the invaluable contributions social workers have made to the community during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Social workers who showed proper credentials received their “treats” at the following Dunkin Donut locations:

  • 4440 Lakeworth Road, West Palm Beach, FL
  • 1999 NW 2nd Ave, Boca Raton, FL
  • 4644 Military Trail Blvd. Lake Worth, FL

In addition, Salvation Army Officers personally delivering 200 elegant Spa Gift Sets that included an inspirational Bible pocket card to local Social Workers who are providing care to families and individuals in partnership with the Army’s local programs. The Bible verse, “Be renewed in the spirit of your mind,” (Ephesians 4:23) is a meaningful message for Social Workers who provide extraordinary care to those in need.

National Social Work Month was first organized in March of 1963 by National Association of Social Workers as a means of encouraging public support for the profession. Then in 1984, a joint resolution of Congress was passed and was proclaimed by President Ronald Reagan under Proclamation 5167 on March 22 as National Professional Social Work Month.

“Social workers are indeed essential,” said Majors James and Leisa Hall, Area Commanders for The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County. “Without their professional assistance, The Salvation Army would not be able to protect children from abuse and neglect, provide mental health and substance abuse treatment, and assist veterans and their families. As caregivers, we do not know how we would have served the most vulnerable during the Covid Pandemic without their help!”

Salvation Army College Cadets and Faculty share their inspirational stories of self-sacrifice while visiting Palm Beach County Area Command

West Palm Beach, Florida (March 10, 2021) – On Saturday, March 13, an interview with cadets and several faculty members from The Salvation Army’s Evangeline Booth College for Officer Training will air on “Frankly Speaking,” the weekly radio program of The Salvation Army of West Palm Beach. The episode can be heard at noon on 1290 WJNO.

The Salvation Army’s Evangeline Booth College for Officer Training is an accredited theological college administered by The Salvation Army. The school is located in Atlanta, Georgia and is named after General Evangeline Booth, the 4th General of The Salvation Army. The Training College was established for the training of Salvation Army Officers. Enrolled students are referred to as either first-year or second-year cadets.

Featured in the photo taken at the I-Heart Studio are Major Leisa Hall, Cadet Brittney Donegan, Captain Andrea Hoover, Cadet Gessica Pierre, and Dr. Frank Marangos, Director of Development, and host of the “Frankly Speaking” radio program. Back row includes local radio personality Brian Mudd, Program Director and Radio host for WJNO & WIOD, Cadet Anthony Rowe, Cadet Roy Fisher, Cadet David Donegan, Cadet Jimmy Pierre, and Captain Scott Hoover.

“The public is unaware, that in order to enter the college Cadets must sell their possessions, leave their careers and homes,” said Area Commanders Majors Chip and Leisa Hall. “While the personal stories of each pair of cadets is inspiring, the Donegan’s best illustrates the commitment that is needed to become a Salvation Army officer. We are certain that the “Frankly Speaking” radio audience will enjoy listening to them. Their story is a great example of self-sacrifice for others!”

Cadets are required to be Christians, adopt the eleven doctrines of The Salvation Army, and not carry any sort of financial debt. To graduate, students must complete coursework in addition to summer and winter assignments at Salvation Army locations. Additionally, students must partake in mission trips that often occur outside of the United States. Once a cadet completes two years of training and receives his associate degree (or higher degree if building upon credits from another institution), they are commissioned as a Salvation Army officer with the rank of lieutenant.

The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County is among the largest global nonprofit providers of social services to people living in impoverished communities around the world. The Salvation Army nationally helps more than 23 million Americans overcome poverty, addiction, and economic hardships through a range of social services including food for the hungry, emergency relief for disaster survivors, rehabilitation for those suffering from drug and alcohol abuse, and clothing and shelter for people in need.

The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County renews valued partnership with #ENDITMOVEMENT. 

West Palm Beach, Florida (February 26, 2021) – On Thursday, February 25th, The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County joined 16 coalition partnerslocal residents, and individuals across the world, to participate in END IT DAY 2021. END IT DAY is an annual invitation of the #ENDITMOVEMENT coalition to take a stand against human trafficking.

The Salvation Army, among the largest global nonprofit providers of social services to people living in impoverished communities around the world, is deeply committed to the modern-day fight against human trafficking (for sexual and labor purposes) and forms of commercial sexual exploitation innately linked to sexual trafficking. This commitment emerges from both The Salvation Army’s mission – to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination – and is rooted in the organization’s early history.

On the local level, The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County has partnered with Catholic Charities to provide a safe house for victims of Human Trafficking in Southeast Florida. Catholic Charities is providing supportive services (case management, transportation, community resources)Apart from providing safe 24/7 shelter, security, and meals, The Salvation Army Anti-Trafficking initiatives work alongside local law enforcement, FBI, ICE, and numerous other community partners to identify, rescue, and restore victims of forced labor and sexual exploitation. We help both foreign and domestic victims of all ages and ethnicities through our nationwide case management network.

The Salvation Army was founded in London, England, in 1865 by Catherine and William Booth. The Booths went against Victorian conventions and took their ministry to the dirty and dangerous streets of London’s east side where they reached out to the destitute and desperate. Their efforts eventually evolved into a battle to protect women and children from the horrors of sex trafficking. In the 1900s, the organization pioneered an undercover sex trafficking investigation, which directly shaped the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885.
