The charity of the month for October 2020 is The Salvation Army. I have heard a lot about this charity for many years now and I am glad to be in the position where I can spread the word about what the charity does. The Salvation Army is a worldwide evangelical Christian church and an international charitable organisation founded in 1865 in East London, England. Their mission is based on everyone experiencing life in all its fullness. The charity is based in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
The Salvation Army
We put our faith into action by offering practical help for people without discrimination, standing up for those who are vulnerable, fighting against injustice, and encouraging people to deepen their relationship with God. The services we offer are diverse and responsive to the realities of life in the communities we serve.
Charity of the Month – The Salvation Army
There are over 700 Salvation Army churches and 1,000 full-time ministers all over the UK and ROI. They offer practical help to vulnerable people who need support and advice. One of the ways they support people is by helping find and stay in work. The Salvation Army’s Employment Plus service offers tailored support to help people become job-ready. Unemployment is on the rise in many parts of the country, so having a charity work on getting people employed is amazing.
Salvation Army helps the homeless in the communities by providing them with temporary accommodations, which is huge. Homelessness is a big issue in many parts of the UK. It breaks my heart every time I come across someone sleeping rough. It is great to see a charity making it their mission to break the cycle of homelessness.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week ahead!
