Assistant Development Director
_Tim and Stacy talk with Rich Draeger of the Salvation Army. The Salvation Army was founded in 1865 in London, England, by William Booth, a former Methodist minister turned evangelist who began preaching in the slums.
The Salvation Army works every day to make life better for countless people in your community. Your gift can enable us to serve nutritious meals to older adults, shelter homeless families, help men overcome addictions, provide after-school tutoring and recreation, and send inner-city children to summer camp. If your concern is global, you can contribute to Salvation Army World Services which provides such programs as HIV/AIDS clinics in Africa, homeless feeding services in Russia, micro-enterprise development in the Philippines, and homes for orphaned and abandoned children in Mexico.
One of the best ways to help The Salvation Army in your community is to volunteer. Contact your nearest Salvation Army unit to find out how you can get involved.
