03-26-2020 Drive Thru Food Distribution

The Salvation Army West Palm Beach Worship & Service Center held its monthly food distribution today. The Social Services office, under the guidance of Captain Brandon Mason, holds this event the last Thursday of each Month, unless it falls on a holiday, and this month was no different. With a few modifications, including a drive through pick up, folks in need were able to receive a variety of food items. We sincerely THANK everyone involved today – you truly are a blessing! This event is possible because of the generosity of others who make donations to our food pantry. Some of the larger donors are Palm Beach Harvest, Whole Foods, and today FitTeam Ballpark. We can’t forget our amazing volunteers, including Katherine Waldron from The Port of Palm Beach, who came out and joined staff handing out pre-packaged bags as individuals and families drove through. With more than 113 families showing up today, and we do expect this number to rise dramatically in the coming weeks, distribution was successful in “Doing The Most Good”. Our Social Services offices, 3 in Palm Beach County, are already seeing an increase in those struggling to make ends meet, and with the support of our friends and neighbors we will continue to support those in need. We are all in this together and we need your help now more than ever! If you would like to donate to our efforts, with a monetary gift or non-perishable food items, please call 561-686-3530. If you need assistance, please contact one of our 3 social service offices, West Palm Beach 561-686-3530; Lake Worth 561-968-8189; Boca Raton 561-391-1344. God bless you all and stay safe! #PalmBeachHarvest #WholeFoods #FitTeam

May 2020 - our efforts in Palm Beach County

The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County, through the wonderful support of its community partners and volunteers, has met the challenges presented with the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

With the resources provided, here are ways in which we have been able to adapt our efforts to serve those in the most need:
• Introduced a drive-thru distribution process to assist the hundreds of families needing food
• Instituted a system to deliver food boxes directly to impoverished neighborhoods
• Improved the process and increased the level of financial assistance for those affected by COVID-19 with rent and utility payments
• Partnered with the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) and Florida Department of Health to prepare and deliver meals for those confined and isolated, including COVID-19 patients in quarantine
• Altered our schedule at our Northwest Community Center to provide help for working parents by offering daily online educational assistance for their elementary aged children, while ensuring a safe and fun place for children to continue to thrive
• Ensured housing and extended services for displaced or homeless Veterans
• Enhanced our housing and concentrated case management for individuals and families experiencing homelessness
• Increased our capacity to house, feed and offer professional care for those re-entering society from the prison system

With the closing of our Family Stores due to the “Safer at Home” order, much of our revenue supporting our programs and services was lost. It is only through the generosity of community supporters that The Salvation Army has been able to meet the growing needs of those impacted by the pandemic.

04-22-2020  -  Salvation Army partnership to bring food to COVID-19 patients  (by Kristen Chapman)

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — The Salvation Army in Palm Beach County is partnering with the Florida Department of Health and Emergency Operations Center to deliver meals to people in the community who have tested positive for COVID-19 and can’t leave their homes when quarantined.

Major Leisa Hall, the Area Commander of the Salvation Army of Palm Beach County, said, "It’s important because if somebody tests positive they can't go back to their families. So the county is putting them in a hotel or some other type of location. They can't go out to get food, they can’t call in for delivery, they don’t have a place to cook their food."
Depending on the patient's needs, like where they are staying and how much storage is available, the deliveries differ. However, it typically includes water bottles, snacks, a fresh and hot meal, frozen meal options, and non-perishable breakfast food.
"They are very nutritious, high caloric which is what people who are sick, need," explained Major Hall.

The organization is also helping by hosting food drives and paying rent and utilities for people who lost their jobs.
During the crisis, the charity has helped more than 300 families with those essential items.
The Salvation Army is still preparing for another influx of people who need help, but so far has been able to meet the need with the help of its community partners.

"We were preparing for potentially hundreds of people at a time who might have needed to be in quarantine because of COVID-19, thankfully I don’t think we’re going to hit that mark which we're thankful for," Major Hall explained.
“Sinclair Cares” is one of those partners. Our news viewers helped our parent company "Sinclair" raise around $2,000 dollars for the Salvation Army. That money will help our neighbors in Palm Beach County and Treasure Coast pay for food, rent and utilities.
The Salvation Army says it's dedicated to continuing to help the community. It will host its monthly food drive on Thursday, April 30th from 1-3 p.m. at 2100 Palm Beach Lakes, West Palm Beach.

04-28-2020 - The Lake Worth office 

The Salvation Army Lake Worth Worship & Service Center teamed up with the Palm Springs Parks & Recreation and Police Departments to distribute more than 300 Prepared meals to residents in the Marlboro Trailer Park and Lakeside Village communities.
“Our partnership with the City of Palm Springs has been such a blessing, not only to us but to those in our communities across Palm Beach County during the pandemic”, said Lt. Jeremy Porter, Corps Officer and Pastor of the Lake Worth Salvation Army. “We need our community now more than ever to be able to reach individuals and families who might otherwise go without a meal”.
Along with Lt. Porter are Corps Sargent Major Dan Hager and Corps Soldier Vicky Jaimes, who are not only Church members, but also Volunteers. We can’t thank them enough for their tireless efforts in helping with our mission of outreach and ministry.
The Salvation Army throughout Palm Beach County and across the nation are being joined by volunteers, donors and supporters who want to help others, who want to make a difference in their communities and who want to give from the heart.

04-30-20 Monthly Food Distribution

Rain or shine - our monthly food distribution went smoothly despite some stormy weather.
This monthly food distribution has turned into a drive thru event, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, allowing us to continue to serve those in need while practicing social distancing, in order to keep everyone safe.
Our Volunteers, who are simply amazing, pulled on their rain gear and greeted each person with a smile. From our Family duo Franklin and Amber, to our faithful servants Janie, Nicole, Vick, Ellen, and Stephanie, family and individuals were able to receive non-perishable food items, bread, fruit & vegetables.
Of course none of this would be possible without our wonderful Social Service Case Workers; Martha and Elizabeth; our Maintenance guys, Barsky and Joyce who helps us set up; and our very own Captain Brandon Mason who helps direct traffic.
We sincerely THANK our incredible donors, who give from their heart, with grocery items and monetary donations that truly makes this event happen.
Thank you, stay safe and God bless!

05-01-2020 Making Science Fun

Major Chip Hall, Area Commander for Palm Beach County, has been helping with the kids at our Northwest Community Center, while school is out due to Covid-19. He is assisting in keeping kids up to date in school work and making learning fun.

On this day, Major Hall who has a FUN personality, was teaching science and the kids loved it. We can't tell who enjoyed it more.

Major Hall not only enjoys the time with the kids but he also knows that these children need positive reinforcement from strong leaders. The Northwest Community Center staff is working hard to keep the kids up to date with on-line school work and to keep them occupied and safe while their parents are at work. It's also hard for the kids who might not really understand what is going on around the world right now. The Center has been open throughout the Covid-19 restrictions to help parents who HAD to work.

We would also like to say THANK YOU to our donors who support this center with monetary donations to provide extra supplies and to our Volunteers who help teach and guide these children to keep them on a positive path.

From smoke and bubbles made with dry-ice to making elephant toothpaste. We can't tell if it was the teacher or students who had more fun.

A Few Messages from Clients: We have received so many messages from those in our community, from clients we've been able to help with food, rental assistance, and utility assistance. We cannot serve those in need without you! Thank you to all who support our efforts in any way!

Dear Salvation Army,

I wanted to thank you and everyone for their generosity by helping my family and myself during these trying times. Your help eased some of my burdens which, in turn, made going forward through this pandemic less stressful. 

I hope you and your family(ies) are staying safe and healthy and I am sending heartfelt prayers your way.

Many thanks and warm wishes,  Denise

Dear Lt. Jeremy Porter,

We want to thank you and The Salvation Army for being so gracious in bringing lunch to our residents.

Sincerely, The Board of Regal Palms condominium Association, Inc.

Thank you for all that you do to support our community! M. Schwartz

As a distinctly Christian social service, it offers care to the total person, spirit, mind and body.

The Salvation Army shield is a universal symbol of help and hope. For people in serious need, The Salvation Army is a buffer between their lives, and desperation. It's the difference between feeling that you've run out of options and getting a second chance.

In Palm Beach County, many families are suffering economic jeopardy. All it takes is a missed paycheck or two, an illness or a spouse who leaves and the family slides into homelessness, desperation and even possible dissolution. The Salvation Army Social Service programs meet the basic needs of daily life for those without the resources to do so themselves.

*Emergency Assistance *Crisis Intervention *Self-sufficiency Programs *Counseling and Budgeting *Utility Bill Assistance *Rent/Mortgage Assistance *Emergency Food Pantry *Disaster Furniture and Clothing Vouchers *Case Management *Referrals/Linkages *Assistance Securing Healthcare/Food Stamp Benefits *Local Palm Tran Reduced Fare Transportation *Other Necessities Based On Need


The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability that repeats generation after generation. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty in addition to The Army’s history of compassionate serving.

By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, we can lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency.

You’re eligible if:
* You have at least one child under the age of 18.     * You’re ready to take action to improve your life.

The Salvation Army declares war on human trafficking.
The Salvation Army Emergency Trafficking Program works 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. Along with giving immediate refuge and relief for victims, we take a holistic approach to healing, helping each person move from a state of victimized enslavement to God-centered self-sufficiency.

Every day in America, people are still sold into slavery.
More than 3,500 sex trafficking cases were reported to the National Human Trafficking Resource Center last year.

The average entry age of American minors into the sex trade is 13 years old. Many victims are runaway girls who have already suffered sexual abuse.

Large populations, international borders, extensive ports, and large metropolitan areas are most conducive to forced human labor and sexual enslavement.

When you give to The Salvation Army, you provide funding for programs that help people escape human trafficking.

We are thankful for each of you who have joined the #FightforFreedom, fighting against human trafficking and making an impact! For additional information and resources visit or contact Hillary DeJarnett, Territorial Services Coordinator Against Human and Sex Trafficking, at

A Legacy of Justice
For more than 150 years, The Salvation Army has stood firmly behind women and children subjected to organized commercial sexual exploitation. In the 1800s, we pioneered an undercover sex trafficking investigation, which directly shaped the Criminal Law Amendment Act of 1885. By 1900, The Salvation Army had created over 100 "rescue homes" throughout London to help those fleeing prostitution. Over a century later, we remain fully committed to abolishing the sex trade from every corner of the world.

The Salvation Army has operated a "curbside" recycling program for more than 100 years. It began in the slums of 19th Century London, and continues to this day in all corners of the globe.

The Salvation Army is supported by the collection and sale of society's surplus but usable household goods. In the early days, men with push carts were sent out to collect paper and other salvage.  Horses and wagons eventually supplanted the push carts, and in turn were supplanted by the familiar Salvation Army trucks.

Today, pick up service and drop off locations collect the donations of a generous public, which fund local programs and services offered to thousands of men, women and children in your local community.

Emergency Disaster -RedIt is important that you realize how you CAN help The Salvation Army and those who are devastated by these disasters.

MONETARY DONATIONS are the most critical need as supplies and personnel are mobilized.

GIFTS IN KIND: Due to the high expense and time demands associated with delivering gently used household goods and clothing (gifts-in-kind), The Salvation Army cannot guarantee that any individual gifts-in-kind donated now will be sent to the disaster area. In times of disaster, our family (thrift) stores fill these needs from existing, presorted stock.

HISTORY: The Salvation Army's first major Disaster Relief efforts resulted from the tragedies of the Galveston Hurricane of 1900 and the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906. The Salvationists nationwide appeals for financial and material donations yielded tremendous support, enabling the Army to provide assistance to thousands. General Evangeline Booth, when she offered the services of Salvationists to President Wilson during the First World War thrust Salvation Army social and relief work to newer heights. Today the Salvation Army is best known for its charitable efforts. The Salvation Army is a prominent non-governmental relief agency and is usually among the first to arrive with help after natural or man-made disasters. They have worked to alleviate suffering and help people rebuild their lives.

The Salvation Army Founders:

William Booth: William Booth began The Salvation Army in 1865, as a means to help the suffering souls throughout London who were not willing to attend – or even welcomed into – a traditional church.
Thieves, prostitutes, gamblers, and drunkards were among his first converts to Christianity, and as his ministry grew, the gospel of Jesus Christ was spread far and wide to the poor, the vulnerable, and the destitute.
Though General Booth died in 1912, he laid a firm foundation for the lifesaving work that The Salvation Army continues to perform today in over 100 countries. 

Catherine Booth: Catherine Booth was known as the “Army Mother.” In her world, women had few rights, no place in the professional sphere, and a minimal presence in church leadership.
Yet in her marriage to William Booth, she became an evangelist, preacher, theologian, and co-founder of The Salvation Army.
A truly passionate Christian, Catherine believed that loving God meant loving people through action. Her legacy of love, sacrifice, and service continues to shape The Salvation Army today.

1922 - The Beginning in Palm Beach County

In the 1920s, much of Palm Beach County was swamp, swampy or wetlands. County and community leaders knew that water was the attraction and the future. They also knew that water was inhibiting progress and growth.

Engineers, dredging and drainage solved the problem, advertisers told the story, and the county grew. Sand paths and trails were transformed into roads, roadways and eventually highways to accommodate ever—increasing automobile ownership and travel. Railroads, first the Celestial and then Henry Flagler’s Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Indian River Railway followed soon by the Florida East Coast, brought products, people and progress to Palm Beach County.

By 1922, Salvation Army leaders saw potential and possibilities for our own growth. A partnership with the Kiwanis Club resulted in the establishment of the West Palm Beach Corps.

A building called the Tabernacle was constructed using labor primarily donated by union-backed construction workers. This corps building housed all Salvation Army indoor activities including worship meetings as well as social welfare programs.

An Advisory Board was quickly organized and immediately became supportive and creative in expanding the reach of the Army. In 1924, a fund to help people at Christmas time, The Empty Stocking Fund, was launched cooperatively by The Palm Beach Post-Dispatch and The Salvation Army.

The Army’s county-wide activity resulted in the establishment of Outposts in Lake Worth in 1925, and Westgate in 1938. The Lake Worth ministry was designated a Corps in 1953. Westgate was merged with the West Palm Beach Corps in 1970.

Today the Army assists children through afterschool programs and community centers. It also houses veterans, the homeless and helps prisoners with their reentry back into the community. The Salvation Army also responds to emergencies like hurricanes and provides social services and counseling to those most in need. Today there also are 3 corps that provide worship services in Lake Worth, West Palm Beach and Boca Raton.

And today in Palm Beach County ...............  what we do at a glance.

NATIONAL DONUT DAY started in 1938 in Chicago as a tribute to The Salvation Army “Doughnut Lassies” who supported our troops on the front lines during World War I. It is celebrated annually on the first Friday in June.

In 1917, The Salvation Army began a mission to provide spiritual and emotional support for U.S. soldiers fighting in France during WWI. About 250 volunteers (Lassie's) traveled overseas and set up small huts located near the front lines where they could give soldiers clothes, supplies and, of course, baked goods. After discovering that serving baked goods would be difficult considering the conditions of the huts and the limited rations, two volunteers – Ensign Margaret Sheldon and Adjutant Helen Purviance – began frying donuts in soldiers’ helmets. These tasty treats boosted morale and won the hearts of many soldiers. Nicknamed “Donut Lassies,” the women who served donuts to troops are often credited with popularizing the donut in the United States when the troops (nicknamed “doughboys”) returned home from war.

During WWI, Donut Lassies served coffee and donuts to soldiers in the trenches. Donuts were not the reason The Salvation Army workers were in the fighting zones; they were there primarily to give spiritual aid and comfort to the American soldier and his allies. They were there to be a link with home and family. The Salvation Army continued to provide comfort, care and donuts to American soldiers during World War II, and is honored to continue to serve the men and women who have served our nation.

More than a century later, The Salvation Army is still supporting those on the front lines, even when it’s a different kind of battle.

Original Salvation Army Donut Recipe:


  • 5 C flour
  • 2 C sugar
  • 5 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 ‘saltspoon’ salt (1/4 tsp.)
  • 2 eggs 1
  • 3/4 C milk 1 tub lard


  • Combine all ingredients (except for lard) to make dough.
  • Thoroughly knead dough, roll smooth, and cut into rings that are less than 1/4 inch thick. (When finding items to cut out donut circles, be creative. Salvation Army Donut Girls used whatever they could find, from baking powder cans to coffee percolator tubes.)
  • Drop the rings into the lard, making sure the fat is hot enough to brown the donuts gradually. Turn the donuts slowly several times.
  • When browned, remove donuts and allow excess fat to drip off.
  • Dust with powdered sugar. Let cool and enjoy.

Yield: 4 dozen donuts
