Reviews for Salvation Army A California Corp.
Reason for giving should be because you care. I've never been rich, but I am thankful for what I have. Make it from month to month if there are no emergencies like a dental visit. Even though I'm very allergic to these biting midges, I am thankful to have a bed to sleep in. When we can, my daughter and I will donate to people who are homeless. They are in my thoughts and prayers. I also believe in taking care of the animals God entrusted us with. I have a cat and a dog. I cannot aford vet bills, but they have a warm safe place and food. I wish I could do so much more, but I do what I can. I am not on welfare and I've never asked for welfare, but I am trying to get back home to get away from these biting midges I have never heard of before. They are also called noseeums and sand fleas, so hard to get rid of and literally torment my life.
Salvation and Creation
Growing up on the North side of Chicago I didn't really realize
my family was poor. We always had food, clothes, and a place where all children in the surrounding neighborhoods in Chicago could go. Either provided for us at home, Boyz and girls club, or the Salvation Army. We always had a resource to go to if our parents could not provide for us. I thought as a child that the salvation army was a Magical place that always served good meals and big Turkeys for THANKSGIVING. Or a place where all the Toys were for CHRISTMAS. Only when I got older did I realize That the Salvation army was a place were people in need came for way more, like education, shelter, or bible study. They are non-profit, a great organization that helps so many people, they also maintain a low overhead, volunteers to do much of the work, thereby having more dollars to help those less fortunate. When I got out of High-School I volunteered to do one of their summer programs and taught 5-8 graders Art. It was the most rewarding job I have had so far. Giving back is the only way I feel Whole or have an purpose. And for every other child out there who don't know that they are poor or less fortunate out there, let them keep thinking that they also have a Magical place called The Salvation Army.
