The Salvation Army has been changing lives in Chattanooga for 121 years. This Friday, July 25, marks the beginning of a new program, which will also change lives. However, this program is unique in that it involves something so simple: flowers. Flowers have the power to make people feel remarkably special.
The Greater Chattanooga Salvation Army sent 61 kids, ages 7-12, to Camp Paradise Valley on Dale Hollow Lake in Burkesville, Kentucky for a week of fun and memories.
Upon arrival, the campers will experience the beautiful countryside while hiking, swimming, boating and exploring the outdoors. Additionally, the campers will participate in Bible study as well as arts and crafts. For many of them, it’s the highlight of the whole year.
The Salvation Army is now a worldwide movement established in 126 countries. Today you’ll see The Salvation Army in your local communities providing shelter and food, running after school programs, serving the sick and elderly, equipping people with job and life skills, responding to disasters, and finding any way possible to meet the needs. The Salvation Army continues to work where the need is greatest, motivated by its faith in God and its love for all people! Here’s to another 149 years!
