For the first 25 days in December, the Indians will highlight one community partner
organization and how you can give back this holiday season.
During The Salvation Army Indiana’s annual Tree of Lights campaign, it seems like there are almost as many events as there are Red Kettles. This year’s goal is $3.3 million — and we really need to reach that goal in order to continue supporting and growing the many programs and services The Salvation Army has in the community.
A program we are especially focusing on this holiday season is The Salvation Army Bed & Bread Club. It’s the star of our December 7 through 9 Radiothon with WIBC.
The Bed & Bread Club is made up of people like you who have decided to take the matter of hunger and homelessness in their community into their own hands. That’s why there are more than 100 Bed & Bread Clubs located all over the country — all with the same mission: to provide food and shelter to the hungry and homeless.
The Clubs help The Salvation Army provide: nutritious meals through their feeding programs, groceries from their food pantries and vouchers to local supermarkets. Clubs also help fund: The Salvation Army’s shelters for the homeless, motel vouchers for families and individuals who need a temporary place to stay and assistance with rent or utilities to prevent folks from becoming homeless in the first place.
Nutritious food and safe shelter are vital necessities for all of us. By providing these basics for needy men, women and children, the Bed & Bread Club gives them the help and hope they need to rebuild their lives.
Bed & Bread Club gifts are used specifically to feed and shelter people in your own local community. Our regular monthly, quarterly or annual donations help level the peaks and valleys in gift-giving that The Salvation Army experiences throughout the year, so they have the resources they need to care for less fortunate families and individuals every day.
