150 Faces and Facts: Volume 21

If a miniature horse can volunteer to ring a bell for The Salvation Army, you can too!

150FF_LynnFACT: The Salvation Army Lynn Corps Community Center holds a semi-annual flea market to raise funds for global missions.

The items are donated by members of the congregation. This event is a terrific example of the connections and support that exist within the global Salvation Army, now serving in 127 countries.

150FF_CassieFACE: After a family move wiped out all of their resources, Cassie needed a little bit of help to feed her growing family. When she came to pick up a grocery order from the food pantry, she spotted a flyer for youth programs and inquired, “Do you accept home-schooled children?”

In her experience, some after-school programs required that children be connected to a local school.

Her children were welcome at the program and now all four of her daughters are now involved in the youth programs at the Fall River Corps Community Center. Cassie has become a leader in those programs and is pictured with one of the many children she has invested in at The Salvation Army.

150FF_QuincyFACT: At their 2015 Annual Civic Dinner, our Quincy Corps Community Center presented Norfolk County Sheriff Michael Bellotti with the prestigious OTHERS Award.

150FF_SpringfieldTornadoesFACT: The Springfield Salvation Army assisted tornado victims and first responders from Westfield to Sturbridge immediately following the 2013 tornado in Springfield and served as long as they were needed.

150FF_TinkerFACE: Tinker and Ta-lu-la ring bells for The Salvation Army in Wisconsin.

How cute are they!
