Texarkana Set to Celebrate National Salvation Army Week
The Salvation Army in Texarkana is excited to celebrate National Salvation Army Week, May 15-21, 2023.
According to a press release, since 1904, The Salvation Army has faithfully and consistently worked to help those in need from our community, 365 days a year providing assistance to individuals and families who may find themselves in crisis, shelter to those experiencing homelessness, food and meals to the hungry, and much more.
In 1954, the week of November 18-December 4 (now recognized in May) was declared by the United States Congress and proclaimed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower to be the first National Salvation Army Week, as a reminder to Americans to give freely of themselves.
National Salvation Army Week presents a wonderful opportunity for us to let the community know more about the work of The Salvation Army in Texarkana,” said Captain Juan Gomez, Commanding Officer of The Salvation Army.
“We want to recognize and celebrate the partners, supporters, and volunteers who make the ministry of the Army possible and invite everyone to join us as we celebrate National Salvation Army Week.”
With more than 7,500 centers of operation in the U.S., The Salvation Army is uniquely positioned to love beyond and meet needs in Jesus’ name, without discrimination, wherever it exists.
