Celebrating 150 Years!

They danced, they sang, and everyone celebrated the 150th Anniversary of The Salvation Army in Greensboro’s City Center Park on Saturday. Salvation Army Commands and Corps from all around the Triad came to join in the historical commemoration.

Join Us to Celebrate 150 Years of Service

The Salvation Army is celebrating National Salvation Army Week this week with a series of events across the country. Each event encourages Americans to donate to or volunteer with The Salvation Army, representing the original intent of President Dwight D. Eisenhower when he declared the first National Salvation Army Week in 1954.

Do You Remember That Summer?

It’s that time of year when students are getting antsy. They’re in the final stretch and can hardly wait to hear the bell ring on the last day of school. For them, that’s the official start to summer. For the staff at The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs of Greensboro, it’s time to kick things into high gear for summer day camp at the clubs. They’re working hard to provide a summer camp experience that will last a lifetime.

These Boys and Girls Will Amaze You!

They impressed us with their poise, they infected us with their laughter, and amazed us with their vision for the Great Future that lies ahead for them. The members of The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Clubs of Greensboro were the highlight of the Great Futures Stakeholders held on April 30, 2015 at The Empire Room.

60 People That Are Vital to The Salvation Army of Greensboro

All week we’ve celebrated National Volunteer Week by sharing the stories of the people who inspire us by their desire to make a difference in our community.

She Spends Her Friday Nights With The Homeless

For the past 10 years, NightWatch volunteers have spent their Friday nights hitting the streets of Greensboro in search of the homeless. The volunteers come from church and civic groups and get together twice monthly. They gather in prayer and then take food, blankets, hygiene kits, Bibles, and the love of Jesus Christ to different areas of the city. Going in teams, they seek to visit the homeless wherever they are -- on the street, in the woods, under bridges.

From the Basketball Court to the Classroom

We are proud of how well members of The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Greensboro are doing academically. Many are outperforming their classmates, their peers in the Guilford County Schools, and students across North Carolina. That success comes in part thanks to the volunteers who work one on one with the students who need additional help.

"Rosebud" and "Rose Petal"

They’ve been affectionately given the nicknames “Rosebud” and “Rose Petal”. The generosity of their time and helping hands are as beautiful as their names. Rose Howell and Rose Langley can be found at The Salvation Army of Greensboro’s Christmas warehouse any day in December. They each log more than 300 volunteer hours during the busy Christmas season.

This Volunteer is an Unstoppable Force

After working 12 hours on the overnight shift as a Rapid Response Nurse at a Moses Cone Hospital, Paula Trivette heads to The Salvation Army of Greensboro’s Family Store two or three times a week. She arrives at 8am to spend another several more hours of her day sorting through and hanging donated clothes.
