Name: Joey

What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? My electric is off and has been for 10 days. Without lights, my son and I have been using a flashlight, taking cold showers and I have had to buy him small meals so that he can at least eat dinner since the stove doesn’t work.

What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? I will be able to feed my son and give him a warm shower. It will give us a better feeling knowing that we can have a good, warm dinner at home.

Mike and his wife, Katherine, were doing all they could to support their family. Their daughter, Emily, was very sick and needed to stay at the hospital for an extended period of time.

Unable to work full-time and be there for Emily, Katherine was forced to cut her hours at work. After having to choose between paying medical bills and feeding their daughter, Mike and Katherine turned to The Salvation Army.

Thanks to friends like you, we were able to provide the family with bags of groceries so they wouldn’t have to go to sleep hungry. We also provided them with comfort and spiritual guidance.

They left that day feeling confident, with their heads held high.

“Without The Salvation Army’s help, my wife and I would have lost everything,” Mike says. “Because of their support, we could finally get caught up on my daughter’s medical bills. It’s like a huge weight has been lifted, and I couldn’t be more grateful.”

Spring is like a light at the end of a dark tunnel. After a hard winter season, the world seems to brighten and the air becomes fresh. This is similar to the millions of families, like Michael’s, that The Salvation Army serves each year.

Being a former professional boxer, Michael has fought tough matches and hard battles. There was one challenge, however, he was not prepared to fight. His boxing career left him legally blind.

He and his wife, Caitlyn, supported their daughter, Claire, by the social security income that Caitlyn was receiving. Sadly, Caitlyn lost her battle with cancer, and Michael soon fell behind on his family’s monthly bills. That’s when Michael contacted The Salvation Army. Our compassionate staff not only provided them basic assistance but also an empathetic listening ear.

When struggling individuals and families turn to us for help, it’s because they have nowhere else to go. They are in over their heads an unable able to see the end of their dark tunnel. We do everything in our power to ensure they receive the help they need to guide them on their way toward self-sufficiency.

People we help know God is working miracles in their lives, even when they can’t see Him.
