Open Arms

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.

With those words in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus defined the work of His faithful servants and, startling to His hearers, He equated Himself with the neediest of humanity. Thanks to God’s provision through the generosity of our donors, The Salvation Army in 2014 was able to answer the Lord’s call to serve Him by meeting human needs of every kind.

Some 30 million men, women, and children throughout America experienced in a tangible, vital way our message that no matter who you are, no matter what you are struggling with, The Salvation Army is here for you. We welcome you with open doors, open hearts, and open arms.
