National Salvation Army Week was first declared by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954. In the proclamation, Eisenhower noted:
“Among Americans, The Salvation Army has long been a symbol of wholehearted dedication to the cause of human brotherhood . . . Their work has been a constant reminder to us all that each of us is neighbor and kin to all Americans, giving freely of themselves, the men and women of The Salvation Army have won the respect of us all.”
May 14-20th, 2012, is National Salvation Army Week! Be on the lookout all week for opportunities to learn about and share in the work of The Salvation Army of Marion & Grant County.
For starters, both Bob Evans and Applebee’s of Marion have teamed up with us to offer a tasty fundraising opportunity. If you print the flyers below, and bring them in with you when you dine on the specific dates (Bob Evans is on Monday, May 14th, and Applebee’s is on Thursday, May 17th), the restaurant will donate %15 of your bill to The Salvation Army! What could be better than dinner and a donation all in one? So, print them off, give them to your friends, and spread the word!
Keep checking back for more fun ways to learn about and serve alongside The Salvation Army of Marion during National Salvation Army week!
