Imagine walking by your favorite department store, you hear the familiar sound of a bell ringing. With the sound becoming louder, you can now see the famous red bucket and someone there to greet you with an enormous smile and a holiday cheer. The people of the Salvation Army aren’t there just around the holidays; they are actively collecting all year round. One of the oldest and most recognized charities also has the highest efficiencies. They reach millions of people all over the world. A monumental organization is characterized by providing for those in need, motivation to identify and eliminate the cause of that need and to bring the community closer.
America’s Megalomaniac Urge to Put Others First Lesley Boone once said, “We are a country that prides itself on power and wealth, yet there are millions of children who go hungry every day.” When people think of world issues, many do not consider America’s stand point on the ordeal. They are unable to fully comprehend the growing lack of jobs, poverty, hunger, poor health care, and meager education that takes place across the nation. American charity foundations are often eager to jump to the rescue of other countries, but what about the detrimental issues that occur and worsen here every day? In the past, the majority of organizations are predominantly directed at foreign countries; helping places such as Ethiopia, India, Somalia, etc. While here, poverty and debt are increasing by surmountable amounts. Charities for other regions are beneficial, but shouldn’t people here be first priority? The majority of problems have the potential to be easily fixed. What happens when we have nothing left to give? If the United States does not soon take this into consideration, it could be hazardous and irreversible to the American society. When considering where America’s charitable hands should go, many things need to be taken into consideration such as; charities outside of the U.S., should America put more effort into problems here, the increasing debt and poverty levels, and how benefits of focusing more here. The first point of this essay will discuss problems within the
Salvation Army The Salvation Army is most commonly known for its red kettle and bell ringer during the holiday season. The Salvation Army date back to 1852, when a couple, William and Catherine Booth started with an ideal about helping the London poor. They felt that there was a growing number of poor being over looked and the poor were growing away from the Christian roots they were raised. In this paper I want to introduce the social and economics despair London went through and how the Salvation Army played a major role in helping the poor in social turmoil.
This involves volunteering were people across the nation donate food and give money to feed the poor. It talks about The Salvation Army in Oxford, West end of London and a little about volunteers (Fletcher 34). Then it goes on to say little things about thirty homeless people and how booth described them as “The Least, The Last and The lost”. It takes about how a former soldier came along to the Salvation Army and had PTSD. Volunteers at the Salvation Army handed the homeless blankets, Clothing and shoes (Fletcher 34). They plans to give food to 1,500 communities on the table across the United States (Bluey 16). The Salvation Army is a place that shows the homeless love and compassion (Fletcher 34).The people called Booth wife the “Mother of the Army”. Founder of the Salvation Army was William Booth (Kellner 71). Booth was a person who wanted more attraction to their attention (Fletcher 34). The way he done this to get more attention was he had songs of music-halls and flip fop the words. By him honoring the slums he brought 10,000 full-time officers to his side (Fletcher 36). During 1912, that was the year Booth had passed away at the aged of eighty-three. Today the Salvation Army Charitable Services has been ruined by the Professional Employees and not by soldiers anymore (Fletcher 37). According to Major Muriel McClena he said “stretching out a hand to mankind you are showing them love and
Influencing others, a great thing to do especially if it’s someone that looks up to you or that you care about. Making a change in people’s lives is a great thing to do. I have been called a “leader” by one of the kids at the Salvation Army. I have
How often do we pass by someone on the side of the highway holding a sign asking for money so they can buy themselves something to eat? We see representatives from The Salvation Army at our local grocery store with bins collecting money for their organization, but instead of donating money we keep walking as if they’re invisible. Often times we talk about change within our community, but we don’t put those words into action. Fostering change within the community is necessary because without it how else do we expect to see a difference within our area. Promoting change is also necessary because you always want to see positive things happening in your community. When positive changes are happening in your community, it can attract people and
The summer prior to my senior year of high school, I volunteered at a basic needs shelter in the Pigtown neighborhood of Baltimore City named Paul’s Place. Paul’s Place provided free meals, clothes, showers, job search assistance, and public computers for the Pigtown residents who were not fortunate to have these seemingly basic necessities. While I was there, I assisted with the setting up and cleaning of dishes for the meals, picking out clothes with the residents, and other general tasks such as cleaning. Although the interactions with the people receiving the meals and clothes made me feel glad that I chose to volunteer at Paul’s Place, the most impactful parts of my experience were the weekly Monday morning meetings with the other people
The Salvation Army hires employees who accept the organization’s core values, supports the mission, and maintains the organization’s image. As a result, “an organizational climate is created where employees share perceptions about the organization and work environment” (Robbins & Judge, 2015, p. 251). The organization relies mainly on volunteers, so leaders must communicate actively with the community to gain support, as there are few paid positions. The majority of volunteers come from the community, religious organizations, or college students who are interning within the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army is an organization that help’s the poor, disabled and homeless. They help feed, clothe, shelter, and also help find jobs for men and women. Many people in the community who drop off their clothing to donation sites probably don’t know where their clothing is going to. Everything that is being donated is helping out everybody in need even across the nation. All the money that has been made goes back into the shelters. Helping out in the community can be a wonderful thing not only is you clearing up space for unwanted things but you're also helping out others. It is amazing what people can do with something. What isn’t your style can be another person’s treasure.
Throughout time, our society has shifted as well as the whole idea of Christmas spirit. Christmas is supposed to be a time of joy, love, and selflessness. Giving gifts is a
Snipping off tags from donated clothes and sorting throughout the massive pile of clothes and separating them into separate sizes was my mission for three days while battling against the bulky bushes outside of a church was my mission for two days whereas caring for a crazy child was my mission for a day. In eighth grade, I went to West Virginia in order to indirectly aid those less fortunate. Dissimilarly, Texas didn’t require me to do charitable work; it allowed me to soak in the scenery by floating across a river. Immersing myself into the Tex-Mex culture through breathing in its vivid architecture and tasting its delectable dishes, I also teleported back in time to the Mexican-American War so I can see the Alamo
The Salvation Army was founded by William Booth. He began evangelizing to the poor, the homeless, the hungry, and the destitute in England. Although he was greatly opposed because of the type people he was preaching to he was able to reach 250,000 people in five years. With the help of some volunteers he would eventually spread his to America. After many years of being an evangelistic group they would eventually become a present-day charitable organization. However it is important to remember the contributions of The Salvation Army: establish a new religion in the 19th century, was one the largest evangelistic movements and one of the first religions to send missionaries to another country.
The Salvation Army, founded in 1865, is one of the world’s largest Christian social welfare organizations providing social services to millions of people across the world every day as well as operating retail thrift stores and providing housing to the poor.

The Salvation Army is a Christian organisation that has become worldwide and focuses on its charitable resources to spread throughout the world. They not only have churches all around the world, but they also have aid services and shelters for people in need of them. Throughout the many years in Australia, the Salvation Army had set up orphanages for children they were abandoned from a small age. They would teach them how to read, write and they would teach them the gospel of Jesus Christ.
