When people come to The Salvation Army seeking food, shelter, or emergency financial assistance, they receive an application to fill out. Included in the application is a voluntary questionnaire that includes just two questions.
Our ‘Brewing Hope’ series will give you insight on what assistance men, women, and children in need are seeking when they come through our doors, and what it means to them to receive a hand up and a sense of hope in their time of need.
What brings you to The Salvation Army for assistance? Help with my Duke energy bill so that my electricity won’t be turned off.
What does receiving assistance from The Salvation Army mean to you? I would be very thankful, and I would have lights and could cook. My food wouldn’t go bad. It would be a big help. I don’t know what I would do without your help, and I do thank God that you are here to help people like me.
Thank you for supporting the programs and services of The Salvation Army, so we can help people find the hope they need to face another day.
