Oct 21 - Salvation Army Lunch

  • October 21, 2012 · 11:00 AM

Everyday The Salvation Army is making an impact and helping the world become a little better by changing one life at a time. We can help by serving meals to the homeless individuals.

We will be serving lunch from 11:00 - 1:15 at the Salvation Army Carr P. Collins Social Service Center (across the street from Parkland Hospital). This location prepares and serves 1200 - 1400 meals daily and houses 400-500 individuals in four residential programs: Substance Abuse for Men & Women; Homeless Shelter for Men; Homeless Shelter for Women & Children and Domestic Violence Shelter.

Please update your RSVP as soon as possible if your plans change. We need to allow time for others to sign up who may be interested.

    One of the greatest things we can do in this lifetime, is to give of ourselves unselfishly and whole-heartedly. It is in that moment our lifes purpose is realized, the ignorance that divides us melts away, and for dreamers like me, the world seems to become a better place.
