2012 Greater Chattanooga Salvation Army Review in Photos

Thank you to our generous community for helping the Greater Chattanooga Salvation Army keep its promise of “Doing the Most Good for people in need…” This past year The Salvation Army was fortunate enough to serve the community in a variety of ways including disaster relief after a March tornado, meeting the emergency needs of our less fortunate neighbors, providing spiritual outreach for all ages, offering character-building youth programs such as The School of Music and Arts, providing holiday assistance for families in need and much more.

Christmas 2012 was a wonderful opportunity to share the joy of Christmas with 4,763 children and seniors through the Angel Tree Program.  The Salvation Army and its Volunteers also delivered Christmas gifts to low-income seniors, local nursing home residents and those incarcerated in our area.  On Christmas Eve, over 250 persons enjoyed a “Christmas Eve Brunch” at our ReCreate Café on McCallie Avenue.  Your prayers and financial support are the reasons we can share this exciting news.

We are excited by the prospect of new opportunities for ministry during 2013 because we are so encouraged by your faithfulness.  We hope the following photos will touch your hearts as they did ours, and affirm the great value of every coin and dollar you donated to our Red Kettles this Christmas.  May our God richly bless you and your loves ones throughout this wonderful New Year!
