Salvation Army Hosts Pathway Of Hope Fundraising Luncheon Wednesday

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

The Salvation Army will hold its Pathway of Hope fundraising luncheon Wednesday at the historic Chattanooga Choo-Choo in the Imperial Ballroom at 11:30 a.m.  Three hundred are expected to be in attendance including the new Salvation Army Area Commander, Major Robert Lyle who will deliver the keynote message.  

The Brassworks, a brass ensemble from the Jericho Brass Band and soloist Deborah Gunn will provide music.

As poverty increases in America, families are increasingly vulnerable. Approximately one in six Americans live in poverty today. The longer a child lives in poverty, the greater the chance she or he will remain in poverty as an adult.  The Salvation Army has developed the Pathway of Hope ministry to help families who commit to breaking the crisis cycle and take a path out of inter-generational poverty. A Salvation Army social worker walks alongside of these single parent families who commit to the program, helping them set education, employment, and family goals.  One of these families will speak at the banquet.  

All funds raised at the luncheon will go to fund the Pathway of Hope program for the upcoming year. Donations may be mailed to 822 McCallie Ave., Chattanooga, TN 37403. Donations are also accepted online at www.csarmy.org or by calling 1-800-SAL-ARMY. For more information about The Chattanooga Salvation Army, please visit www.csarmy.org, Facebook, and Twitter.

DACA Or Amnesty To Become The Majority?

As we have the political drama that we see in D.C. let’s be honest about what DACA is all about.

Without an influx of new dependency ... (click for more)

He turned in his paper and, as it was returned with an A-plus, it is only fitting that something this clever should begin this week’s edition of The  Saturday  Funnies. Those who enjoy the Funnies understand that ... (click for more)
