A letter from the Captain

Each year, I get the privilege to meet Salvation Army Advisory Board members and donors from across the southern United States. During many of my conversations, I am often told, “Captain, I have not been called to do what you do, but I have been called to help you do what you do.” These talks affirm the special role of all our supporters and volunteers as they come along side of us. Together, we are all called to make sure we are “doing the most good.” It is more than a good idea. It is more than an act of kindness. It is more than social responsibility. It is truly a calling.


I recently spoke with a woman in our offices who was struggling with stage 4 cancer. Her medical bills were out of control. She could no longer work to support herself and she needed food for the meals she would eat that day. Her electricity was about to be turned off. She was so thankful that we could help her. But, I knew there was something more we needed to share. As I knelt down on the floor beside the chair in which she sat, I simply put my hand on her arm and told her how much we cared for her. With tears streaming down her face, she looked at me and said, “This is the first time in over a year that someone has treated me like a human being.” Until that moment, she could only see herself through her illness. But, that day, she saw herself as a human being; she was worthy of respect and compassion.


Even though you may not sense the call to wear a Salvation Army uniform, you and I can both envision the call to treat those in need with respect and compassion. It’s a beautiful vision, where everyone sees each other as human beings. It starts with simple kindness and a moment of our time. A gentle touch on a shoulder. A genuine smile. A simple prayer. A generous donation. These are the basic tools to live out our unique calling. Envision the call today, embrace it, and get ready for a life-changing experience with us by your side—your Army.

MEETING NEEDS

The Salvation Army of Durham, Orange and Person counties knows the needs of the counties we call home. Hungry children, homeless individuals, struggling families, they are not just strangers to us, they are our neighbors and it is a core mission of The Salvation Army of Durham, Orange and Person counties to meet their needs.


We feed the hungry, provide financial assistance to the struggling, pray with the hopeless and bring Christmas joy to children who would otherwise go without. Much has changed in our community since 1910, but need remains.


And so do we, your Army.

PROVIDING A PLACE TO CALL HOME

We believe no family should have to make the choice between paying utilities and buying food. We strive to assist people in our community so they don’t have to make these difficult decisions. We know that many are just one paycheck away from becoming homeless.


The Salvation Army of Durham, Orange and Person counties provides emergency assistance should an individual receive an eviction or cut-off notice. Coordinating with other community agencies, the Army makes payments directly to the utility company or landlord to ensure another 30 to 60 days of services/rent is met.

Our stocked food pantry provides individuals and families with food staples throughout the year. During the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays, we also provide grocery gift cards to the elderly and visually impaired.


ANGEL TREE AND CHRISTMAS TOY SHOP IMPACT

The Christmas season is always a unique time for the Salvation Army. It’s a time of year where we continually see opportunity to bring people hope and serve them in special ways.


Christmas morning should be a time of joy and laughter for children as they open brightly wrapped presents, but not every family can provide this experience to their kids.


The Salvation Army believes that Christmas is a time for giving with a joyful heart. Each year, The Salvation Army collects new clothing and toys for children in Durham, Orange and Person counties through the Angel Tree Program and Our Christmas Toy Shop. Year-after-year, the joy and love that is shared with the grateful families through these programs warms the hearts of all who are involved.


TAKING CARE OF ESSENTIALS IN 2013

Empowering independence

We are called to feed the hungry, give aid in times of disaster, and provide shelter to the homeless. However, beyond the immediate needs, there exists an innate yearning in the human heart for self-sufficiency and self-reliance. And at The Salvation Army of Durham, Orange and Person counties, we are committed to promote these characteristics… to empower independence.


PASSING ON LIFETIME SKILLS

We aim to empower our community by helping individuals to be self-sufficient rather than dependent. Giving a hand up instead of a handout can mean the difference between empowerment and entitlement.

We also collaborate with the First Baptist Church of Durham to implement the Jobs for Life program. It’s our effort to address poverty through equipping individuals for meaningful work. This proven course combines work-readiness training, Biblical principles and volunteer mentoring to help individuals find purposeful work for a lifetime.

DOORS
