Taking Them Out to the Ballgame

Next week, 500 children from neighborhoods across Philadelphia will experience what some have only known from a television screen: attending a major league baseball game. On July 24, children from The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia's various corps community centers throughout the city will board buses destined for Citizens Bank Park, where they'll be greeted by dozens of Salvation Army volunteers with posters, foam fingers and other prizes for their special "Day with the Phillies" game day. The group will be donned in Salvation Army t-shirts.


Salvation Army Day Care Program Receives Special Certification

The Salvation Army Philadelphia Citadel Corps Community Center Day Care has reason to be proud: it's just been recognized with the Pennsylvania Keystone STARS "STAR 2" certification, reserved for child care organizations that have demonstrated efforts towards continuing education for staff members, providing a higher standard of educational opportunities for children, and meeting city criteria for educational topics.


Nothing has the Ability to Change the Life of a Child Quite Like Summer Camp

Unfortunately, many inner city children will never experience hiking in the mountains or sleeping in a tent beneath a starry sky. To remedy this, The Salvation Army offers the opportunity for inner city children, like 8-year-old Marquise, to experience life outside of the city in the great outdoors.
