The Salvation Army of Pulaski County is very happy to announce that the fundraising goal of $100,00 for 2021 was exceeded!  (The final number is still being determined and will be announced at the Salvation Army Luncheon on 27 January, 2022)

THE SALVATION ARMY POSITION ON RACISM AND CRT

 

Unfortunately misinformation about the Salvation Army was published recently regarding Critical Race Theory. Please know this:

 

1. The Salvation Army's beliefs are based on Biblical truth, and specifically in this case that all people are created equal and in the image of God. Therefore the Salvation Army believes racism is unacceptable.

 

2. The Salvation Army DOES NOT endorse Critical Race Theory.

 

3. For additional information corroborating these facts, feel free to call our local Co-Chair Jeannie King at 573-855-0122.

 


THE SALVATION ARMY MISSION STATEMENT:

“…meet human needs, in HIS name,

without discrimination.”

The Salvation Army of Pulaski County is very happy to announce that we EXCEEDED our fundraising goal for 2020!

We had a goal of $90,000 for our local funraising and raised a little over $120,000.  This shatters our prior fundraising record.  Amazing!

We want to send out our heartfelt thanks to our wonderful donors, our incredible bell-ringers, our business partners, and all thosewho worked "behind the scenes" to make this happen. 

The generosity of everyone in the Pulaski County area is truly a blessing.

There were a lot of challenges this year with the pandemic.  Thanks to everyone who followed our COVID procedures and helped keep our community safe.

Because of this record fundraising success we will now be able to fully fund all of our assistance/benevolence programs and provide a record amount of support to the less fortunate in our area.
