Divisional Leader Message
It's Our Promise to You.
I AM COMMUNITY. I AM COMPASSION. I AM FAITH. I AM HOPE. I AM AN ARMY.
The anniversary of our Lawrence Corps—the first in the Commonwealth—allowed us to reflect on how far we have come since it opened in 1883. Even before the Merrimack Valley Gas Explosions, we were there, poised and ready to help when disaster struck.
From providing holiday assistance, disaster relief, and substance-abuse rehabilitation to preventing homelessness and hunger, you make our life-changing work possible. Together we battle the forces of poverty and crisis.
You are doing the most good when you make a heartfelt gift or volunteer your time. You understand our mission and give out of compassion to help meet need in its many forms. Because of your giving, families can depend on The Salvation Army throughout the year to meet their basic needs.
When we use the word “most” in our promise of “Doing the Most Good,” we are not comparing ourselves to other non-profit organizations. From giving second chances, feeding empty stomachs, to rebuilding shattered lives…we strive to live out what the great Methodist minister John Wesley said. “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, as long as ever you can.”
In this report you will see people like you, who exemplify what it means to “Do the Most Good.”
David B. and Margaret W. Davis, Majors
