Organization's Mission: 
Motivated by the love of God, we are committed to integrity of mission and the stewardship of donations received to span the gap between where we are and where we need to be. This combination led Peter Drucker to state in his book, Profession of Management, "[The Salvation Army] is by far the most effective organization in the U.S. No one even comes close to it with respect to clarity of mission, ability to innovate, measurable results, dedication, and putting money to maximum use." First and foremost - The Salvation Army is a church so its Officers, who are ordained ministers, know they are responsible to the Lord in all they do because they serve in His name. Their commitment goes far, far beyond the demands of "a job." Second - Because of our focus on meeting human need without discrimination, we enjoy a wonderful public trust from donors from all walks of life. The tangible results of so many lives touched and healed gives confidence to our donors that their contributions will get to where they are most needed in their local community. Third - Besides the financial support of, there are countless others whose gifts in kind of food, clothing and the like empower the local pantries and kitchens and Family Stores to take care of individuals and families. And finally, there are the volunteers -those faces you might see preparing hot meals for the homeless, tutoring kids after school, distributing meals at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Over 4,000 strong, last year they lent over 330,000 volunteer hours to help us deliver service efficiently, effectively and from their hearts.
