Salvation Army Announces Appreciation Dinner


DECATUR---The Salvation Army will offer their Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner to all who volunteered in 2015.  The dinner will be held on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at 6 pm in The Salvation Army’s Community Hall. 

“This is a small way for us to say Thank You to all who helped us this past year,” said Major Wes Dalberg, Corps Officer for The Salvation Army.

 Besides the dinner, each volunteer will be recognized with a certificate.  And for the Guns and Hoses bell ringing competition, Major Wes Dalberg will be presenting “The Bell”, a traveling trophy between the two groups.   The Salvation Army appreciates the time given by each volunteer. 

The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for more than 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services that range from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar The Salvation Army spends is used to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
