To serve local Firefighters and Police Officers in "THIER" time of need. As well as the community in the time of disaster. Doing The Most Good.
While every disaster is unique and creates its own special needs, the core of The Salvation Army's disaster program consists of several basic services. And while these services address many of the typical needs of a disaster survivor, Salvation Army disaster relief is also flexible. Our services are adapted to the specific needs of individuals and communities and scalable according to the magnitude of the disaster.

In this new century, The Salvation Army is serving more people in the USA than ever before. We are already seeing large increases in the number of Americans seeking the basic necessities of life - food, shelter, and warmth. Approximately 30 million people received help from The Salvation Army in 2011, but the magnitude of the mission facing The Salvation Army in communities throughout the United States remains great.

such a cold night on "Night Watch" tonight. I feel so sorry for those that are homeless.
You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11
Happy New Year and may GOD Bless you and keep and your family in his hands.
The Salvation Army met its fundraising goal this Christmas season, and then some, but no gold coins appeared in red kettles around Lincoln. Someone did leave a silver dollar from the 1920s or '30s worth $20 to $25, Capt. Jamie Pennington said. In the past, bell ringers have found South African Krugerrands, Morgan silver dollars and other old coins. One year, someone dropped a gold filling into a red kettle. The price of gold may have something to do with the lack of them this year. At the end of 2012, the price for an ounce of gold was $1,675. But one person dropped ten $100 bills in a red kettle at the Wal-Mart at 3400 N. 85th St. on Dec. 22, Pennington said. The anonymous donation has been made for at least three years. For some reason, people dropped more foreign currency into kettles this year than ever before. "We received coins from 25 or 30 countries," including Japan and Korea, Pennington said. And someone contributed paper currency from Australia. In all, the Salvation Army collected $595,735, surpassing its goal of $551,000. Of the nearly $600,000, a record $264,040 came through the red kettles placed at 35 spots throughout the city, Pennington said. The previous record was about $250,000. With bad weather on the Wednesday and Thursday before Christmas, Pennington was concerned they would fall short. "Donations in the last three days prior to Christmas are what put the organization up over its goal," he said. “I especially want to thank all of the volunteer bell ringers who stood by the kettles in snow, cold weather and even the nice days. We also wish to thank the area merchants who allow us to place the kettles in front of their store.” The nonprofit did have a tough time getting enough volunteers to ring bells, Pennington said. "We were down a little bit in volunteer hours but people's generosity came through and we were able to meet our goal." Part of the money raised through the red kettle campaign went to buy Christmas toys and food baskets for area families and children, Pennington said. The rest represents about half of the agency’s annual budget.
