SAN ANTONIO – If you need essentials such as food, household items and water, or know someone who needs help, Salvation Army is here to serve you.
This year’s National Salvation Army Week is taking the place of what would normally be Salvation Army’s annual luncheon and is expected to serve as the second biggest fundraiser of the year, behind their annual Red Kettle Campaign.
The San Antonio Salvation Army will continue their phone bank today (Thursday, May 13) through 7 p.m. in hopes of raising $250,000 during National Salvation Army Week that runs May 10-14.
Each donation helps ensure the nonprofit can continue on its mission to serve the community. If you would like to make a monetary donation during the phone bank, call 210-598-7921.
“All the money raised today stays local here in San Antonio and helps local families in need,” said Brad Mayhar, a representative for The Salvation Army. “We have programs that go on year-round. We have an emergency family shelter. We have social services programs where we have monthly food distributions, senior programs for the Boys and Girls Club.”
