Salvation Army ‘residents’ give back in bad weather
Wednesday, February 2, 2011
When the beautiful-yet-treacherous snowfall passes, that’s when opportunity comes.
At The Salvation Army’s Center of Hope, shelter residents will take care of their “home” by shoveling and clearing the sidewalks for visitors and those seeking daily meals.
“We want people to step up to the shovel,” said Maj. K. Kendall Mathews, regional coordinator. “Our residents take pride in their shelter and we’re teaching them to be responsible.”
