National Salvation Army Week
Date: May 12 - May 18, 2014
Time: Week Long Event
Venue: Across Minnesota and North Dakota
The 61st annual National Salvation Army Week runs May 12–18. The event is The Salvation Army’s way of thanking the volunteers and donors who’ve made the organization one of the world’s largest and most trusted charities.
Last year in Minnesota and North Dakota, more than 80,500 volunteers and countless donors helped The Salvation Army provide food, shelter, youth services, disaster relief and more to about 481,000 people in need.
President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared the first National Salvation Army Week in 1954 as a reminder to Americans to give freely of themselves, saying, “Among Americans, The Salvation Army has long been a symbol of wholehearted dedication to the cause of brotherhood.”
