Santa Claus and his elves, evergreens draped with tinsel and ornaments, nativity scenes, familiar old Christmas carols, and even Salvation Army Christmas Kettles…all traditions that many of us love to revisit each year. But did you know about The Salvation Army’s Honor Card?
With a new design each year, The Salvation Army’s Honor Card is eagerly anticipated by many as a way to honor their friends, colleagues and family with a unique and personal greeting while also supporting The Salvation Army’s mission of meeting human needs.
Because of the support received through Honor Cards and other donations throughout the year, The Salvation Army served over 20,000 people in Greensboro last year!
2015 marks the 9th year that local Greensboro artist Judy Meyler has painted a scene exclusively for The Salvation Army and our supporters. This year the card’s design pays homage to the thousands of children that will have a happy and joyous Christmas morning thanks to the gifts they’ve received through the Angel Tree program.
The interior message, though, reminds us all of the real meaning of the season: “Christmas is not as much about opening presents as it is about opening hearts.”
Honor Cards are available for a minimum donation of $5 apiece. Cards can be purchased at the Tyler White Art Gallery, 307 State St. in Greensboro or The Salvation Army Center of Hope, 1311 S. Eugene St. in Greensboro. You can also call (336) 273-5572 to order by phone with a credit card.
Thank you for your support and Merry Christmas!
