National Salvation Army Week

These bell ringers help thousands of people across the nation celebrate their holidays better by organizing and collectiong donations. To help celebrate this organization the National Salvation Army Week falls from May 8th through the 15th. When the United States entered World War I the Salvation Army was ready to help. The Salvation Army established a War Board and began programs in US Army camps and canteens across the country.

Come over to the library to read up on World War I and the history of the Salvation Army. We also have a great collection of educational World War I DVDs. Otherwise donate or volunteer at your local Salvation Army.
