1 in 30 children experience homelessness each year in the US.
Families in our community are struggling with basic needs like shelter and food.
But we can help. The Salvation Army's #BedAndBread Club supports programs that provide a hand up - not a hand out - to empower local struggling families. Join our #FightForGood today at http://salar.my/FightPoverty.

Summer is almost here but not everyone has the means to keep cool in their homes. Westlake #AceHardware stores around the US have partnered with The #SalvationArmy to help provide fans for those in need. The hardware stores will be collecting donations now through 6/24 to purchase fans for us to distribute locally to low-income seniors, qualified families with children, and adults with disabilities. Click the link to help our struggling neighbors this summer! https://www.westlakehardware.com/landing-pages/fan-drive/

“I really learned how to be a parent... that I can’t be their friend, I have to be their #father."
Keith Shanklin, 45, has spent about half his life in jail and wasn’t always there to parent his children. But he signed up for The Salvation Army’s Fatherhood in Action, a program that helps fathers in Cook County Jail build better relationships with their children and the children’s mothers. Now that he’s out of jail, the work he’s done is paying off. Read about his #Fatherhood journey - http://salar.my/ZDVcHl.

The average age of a person facing homelessness in the USA is 11 years old. Families in our community are struggling with basic needs like shelter. But we can help. With the #BedAndBread Club, it's more than "just" shelter or food. We are fighting to end homelessness. We are fighting for children who need a roof over their heads and meals on their tables. Join our #FightForGood at http://salar.my/FightPoverty today.

#NationalDonutDay began with Doing The Most Good. When The #SalvationArmy Doughnut Lassies were on the front lines of WWI to provide support and lift the spirits of the American soldiers - a.k.a. "Doughboys" - they managed to serve up to 9,000 donuts to our troops daily!
