It’s always an honor to be asked to share about The Salvation Army, how we carry out our mission to help our neighbors in need, and how we can work together in “Doing the Most Good.” So, when Advisory Board member Don Steel (Planned Investment, Inc.) invited us to speak to the Service Club of Indianapolis, we felt privileged to accept.
Development Director Jeff Stanger spoke to about 100 Service Club members, who are primarily Armed Forces veterans. Jeff began with how The Salvation Army, through the generosity of Hoosiers, was able to meet the immediate needs of those affected by the recent tornadoes and flooding throughout Indiana.
He relayed the success of our Operation Compassion program, which is The Salvation Army’s only program sending care packages and encouragement to troops serving overseas. Over 73,000 packages have been sent since its inception in 2002 following the invasion of Afghanistan.
Whether helping a family recover from a flood or sending a piece of home to a soldier overseas, The Salvation Army appreciates the support of organizations like the Service Club of Indianapolis. We’d like to speak with you, too. If your organization, group, school, or service club would like to hear about how The Salvation Army is “Doing the Most Good,” please contact us for more information.
