5 Reasons to Support the Salvation Army

1. The Salvation Army teaches youth to be productive citizens. Their character-building programs provides opportunities for physical, emotional, and mental development. 

2. They offer wellness opportunities such as fitness, athletics, and cooking programs. This combats obesity and encourages children to maintain a healthy lifestyle.  

3. They provide humanitarian aid to developing countries, the homeless, and working poor. They give toys to children who otherwise may not have a single gift to open on Christmas. 

4. They provide disaster relief in the form of food, water, and shelter. It is a safe haven for people who feel that they have no place to go. 

5. The money earned from selling donated goods at their stores support Adult Rehabilitation Centers. This provides housing and therapy for people who have lost the ability to cope with their problems.
