Salvation Army Of Cleveland Supports The 181st Field Artillery Regiment

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

More than 200 local men and women are currently deployed as a part of the National Guard’s 1st Battalion 181st Field Artillery Regiment. 

One of the soldiers, Sgt. Jeremiah Martin, contacted officials at the Inman Street Coffeehouse in Cleveland, to let them know how much he missed them. He was a regular in the coffeehouse prior to deployment, and volunteered with the Salvation Army. 

The Salvation Army, Cleveland, felt the most practical way to respond, was to with the help of our customers, send a care package of coffee and notes of appreciation to not only Sgt. Martin, but enough for the entire 181st to enjoy. The community filled out numerous, heartfelt cards of appreciation and love, and The Salvation Army is sending over 50 bags of coffee and tea to the troops in time for Christmas.
