150 Years of Helping
2015 marked the 150th worldwide anniversary of The Salvation Army, the second largest charity in the United Sates. Originating in 1865 in London, England, the organization championed and provided to the most needy, continuing today to adapt to the needs of the communities in order to ‘Do The Most Good’.
Here in Appleton, WI (Fox Cities) The Salvation Army has supported the community since 1917 providing such services as emergency food pantry and a noon meal program for families in need. All thanks to your generous support!
