ActioNet collected over 680 clothing separates, accessories and suits in support of the Salvation Army. There is a saying that timing is everything; I must admit the clothing drive dates coincided with the change from winter to spring, the time most families begin spring cleaning. Whether is was timing, generosity or the willingness to help those in needs, the charity event for this quarter was a huge success. Thank you ActioNeters!
Most of us are aware of the Salvation Army centers in communities across the United States, I would like to highlight one of their programs called The Pathway of Hope. The Salvation Army’s Pathway of Hope initiative provides individualized services to families with children who desire to take action to break the cycle of crisis and vulnerability. It seeks to address the root causes of poverty in addition to The Army’s history of compassionate serving. By helping families overcome challenges like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education, the program helps lead families down a path toward increased stability and, ultimately, self-sufficiency. The Pathway of Hope is a program that is national across the Salvation Army. It is focused on breaking the cycle of generational poverty. Let’s be mindful while the people they served might be strangers, each person served has a name.
