The Salvation Army of Loudoun County is celebrating National Salvation Army Week May 9-15 by highlighting the services the organization provides to area residents.
“Our mission is to see the whole of society renewed, redeemed and transformed, by helping one life at a time,” stated Elizabeth Stefanik, development director of the organization’s Loudoun chapter.
Last year, Salvation Army of Loudoun County provided emergency assistance to more than 22,000 individuals. According to Loudoun Corps Officer Cpt. Allen Tanner, “the need for our services continues to grow, and we expect to help even more lives this year.”
The organization helps Loudoun residents in need through a variety of programs. Its Family Store—at 10 Cardinal Park Drive SE in Leesburg—accepts donations of unwanted household items and apparel. It uses revenue made from the sale of those items to prevent homelessness by providing annual rental assistance to Loudoun families.
The Salvation Army also offers seasonal programs, including summer camps, the Angel Tree and Tools for Schools that provides supplies for students in need. Learn more about the local Salvation Army programs at virginiasalvationarmy.org/loudouncountyva.
