An Army United for Good
Celebrate the impactful legacy of The Salvation Army and how it has transformed communities for over a century.
In 1954, the U.S. Congress approved a joint resolution for President Dwight D. Eisenhower to proclaim a week to recognize the humanitarian efforts of The Salvation Army. Today, The Salvation Army annually serves nearly 24 million Americans and is in nearly 7,000 communities to address the critical impacts of poverty around the country.
The Salvation Army is the largest non-governmental direct provider of social services in the country, made up of more than 1.4 million volunteers, 400,000 officers, and church members, 47,600 advisory organization members, and almost 50,000 employees.
