Dear Friends,

In 1865, General William Booth brought the fight for good to the dark streets of Victorian London, England. He believed that ordinary people could come together and fight for the physical and spiritual welfare of the city’s poor. Today, General Booth’s fight for good continues in more than 120 countries worldwide.

In the Carolinas, The Salvation Army fights against poverty and homelessness. Feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, empowering our youth, and offering assistance that keeps families in their homes are the frontlines of our fight. Your support over the past year has made the lives of those in need a little easier. It has given them hope.

In this annual report, you will read how The Salvation Army is a refuge for people in their times of need. Thanks to your support and prayers, we are always ready to provide relief for their physical, financial and spiritual needs, and to bring hope and salvation through Jesus Christ.

Thank you for partnering with us in a fight that has lasted for more than 130 years in the Carolinas. You help provide relief for your community. You provide your neighbors in need with a tangible expression of God’s love. You fight for good.

God bless you,

Majors Mike and Susan Rodgers
