To help those who are hurting

Major Robert Dixon

The Salvation Army told us today it is ready for its Christmas in July campaign.  You’ll be seeing the familiar kettles in Center City every Tuesday in July.

Major Robert Dixon says the need to help the hurting in Philadelphia is great.  The organization last year provided 600,000 meals and 400,000 sheltered nights.  I heard Dixon say today as we gathered at the facility along Conshohocken State Road, “If the Salvation Army were to close its doors, our community (Philadelphia region)  would be in dire straits.”

Besides shelter and nutritional food, SA has music programs, tutoring, computer labs, homework help, the Red Shield House where self-sufficiency is nurtured, and more.  It’s all part of Doing the Most Good.
