Looking back at 2017, the Salvation Army has seen several successes.
"We've had a number of really great food drives," shared Major Heather Harbin. "Over the whole year, our shelves have never emptied. They've always been supplied. People have been generous the whole year. That's an amazing thing."
As well, the Salvation Army, seeing a need for hot meals, turned last year's Warm Welcome Shelter into the Warm Welcome Kitchen.
"That is going really good. The numbers are up so we're pleased with that. In three months we're going to evaluate but it seems to be going well right now."
They also helped send kids to camp this summer.
"We were able to send almost 40 kids to camp over the summer. That was a great thing, we just love that. The kids have such as super time. It's a great thing, they get to go away for a week and have lots of fun. It's one of the things that we enjoy the most."
They also run a thrift store that supports the Salvation Army which sells clothing and other household items. The store also sell rags as well.
"We have two people from Diversified Services. They come and they cut the rags for us. They're part of our team too so that's great."
With 2017 drawing to a close, they are already looking forward to the New Year.
"Year by year, we keep going. Again, the support of the community is amazing. They really help us do what we do. Without them, we couldn't so we're so grateful."
