The Salvation Army of High Point will host its first annual Field of Flags to honor men and women in active military service, veterans, and emergency first responders on Independence Day.
Beginning this week, community members are invited to sponsor an American flag to be placed on the field at The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club in honor or memory of a family member or friend. Flags will be on display July 4th for the community to view and pay tribute to those in High Point and surrounding communities who made and continue to make the ultimate sacrifice.
“We are thrilled about this; one of our goals when we moved to the Piedmont Triad was to find ways to increase support for our men and women in uniform. We believe that this first Field of Flags event will be a great way for us to more intentionally support, celebrate and recognize all those who keep us safe!”
American Flag sponsorships are $35 each and can be reserved now through June 30th. On Sunday, July 4th, 2021 a special service will be held at 3pm on site at the Field of Flags to recognize the men and women represented on the field, complete with special music, a short program, and the sounding of taps.
Currently, The Salvation Army serves around 500 veterans annually through William Booth Gardens Senior Living Facility, Childcare at The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club and primarily through emergency rent, utility, clothing, and food assistance. Proceeds from the Field of Flags will help The Salvation Army increase assistance to local veterans, military families, and emergency first responders through social services programs, scholarships for children of military families at The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club, and a special cookout in partnership with the Heroes Center for veteran and military families later this summer.
