It’s The Salvation Army’s 150th anniversary year! It was in 1865 that our founder, William Booth, a London
minister, gave up the comfort of his pulpit and decided to take his message
into the streets where it would reach the poor, the homeless, the hungry and
the destitute. Our organization has now grown internationally to 126 countries.
A Day in Harrisburg
On Tuesday, May 6, Salvation Army officers from Allentown to York convened in Harrisburg to share with legislators the work The Salvation Army is doing to better the lives of thousands of Pennsylvanians every day. Dozens of Salvation Army representatives participated in morning sessions with their local elected officials to discuss the need in their communities and the important services The Salvation Army provides such as food assistance, emergency shelter, social services, senior citizen and youth programming, emergency disaster services, and more. During the past year, The Salvation Army provided more than 2 million meals to Pennsylvanians in need, and served more than 1.9 million people through its local community programs.
