Year End Review: Best Photos of 2013

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 with donors’ contributions of money, time and resources.” 

This past year The Salvation Army was fortunate enough to serve the community in a variety of ways.  Our disaster response team answered the call to assist with flooding in South Pittsburg and the Patten Towers’ fire.  In partnership with the Nehemiah Project, over 4,500 backpacks filled with school supplies were distributed to students in need.  Over 70 children were able to enjoy a week of fun, learning, and personal growth in a safe environment at our Camp Paradise Valley, located on Dale Hollow Lake.

The Salvation Army is meeting the emergency needs of our less fortunate neighbors 365 days a year, 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.

In addition, The Chattanooga Salvation Army celebrated its 120th anniversary of life-changing ministry in our community this year!

Christmas 2013 was a wonderful opportunity to share the joy of Christmas with 5,455 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 also excited by the prospect of new opportunities for ministry during 2014 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 loved ones throughout this wonderful New Year!
