The Salvation Army has been around since the late 1800s.

Today, local chapters across the country are helping those in need every holiday.

Starting with Thanksgiving, many local chapters provide turkey meals or serve on-site dinners.

Commissioner Kenneth G. Hodder, National Commander for The Salvation Army, told TheSun: “After almost two years of added difficulties stemming from the pandemic, millions of Americans face the threat of not being able to celebrate the holidays as they continue to battle the impacts of pandemic poverty.”

“With a presence in nearly every ZIP code across the country, The Salvation Army has the unique ability to meet the needs of those who seek our services, with programs and resources tailored to each community.

Once Thanksgiving wraps up, the Salvation Army turns its attention to the Christmas season.

Commissioner Hodder added: “As the nation’s largest private provider of social services, we haven’t stopped working to provide help and hope — no matter the cost.”
