“I urge all of our citizens to honor the Salvation Army during that week
for its work in the United States in the past seventy-five years.”
President Dwight D. Eisenhower, November 24, 1954″
Join us as we celebrate National Salvation Army Week between May 14 and 20, 2018. During this week, we remember our past while reminding those what we do in the present.

This is the same number as those who are homeless in the United States.
One in eight people is starving.
14% of Americans go to bed hungry each night.
