The Salvation Army of Wake County has a slew of activities planned to celebrate National Salvation Week, May 9 – 15. TSA Wake County will kick the week off with a staff appreciation day on Monday where staff will convene for games, activities, food, and capped up by a kickball game at the Red Shield Club.
Tuesday May 10 will be EDS (Emergency Disaster Services) Day, which will bring awareness to the services The Salvation Army of Wake County provide during disaster. TSA Wake County’s “A-Team” has been called upon to provide food to first responders during a local disaster, provide services during hard hit areas across the state of North Carolina including during Hurricane Florence in Carteret County, Hurricane Dorian in Ocracoke Island, and in other states including Florida and Louisiana.
On Thursday, May 12, TSA Wake County will bring awareness to its volunteers during Volunteer Day. One hundred volunteers from Ashley Wilson Realty Group will also be on hand at The Salvation Army of Wake County Family Shelter for a beautification project.
Not only does TSA Wake County provide disaster services and house families in its shelter but also provides social service ministries through its programs Project CATCH – Community Action Targeting Children who are Homeless – and Project FIGHT – Freeing Individuals Gripped by Human Trafficking – and provides food through its daily soup line and through its food pantry. TSA of Wake County Red Shield Club provides athletic activities and summer day camp for children and programs for seniors. During Christmastime, TSA Wake County provides toys and clothes for children in need. It also runs a Family Store, located at 205 Tryon Rd., Raleigh, where all the proceeds from the store goes right back into TSA’s social service program. At the heart of it all is The Salvation Army of Raleigh International Corps.
The Salvation Army of Wake County is celebrating 135 years of service to Wake County.
National Salvation Army Week was declared by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954, and since then it has served as an annual reminder of the vast scope of our services and ways the public can help.
