Making ends meet ...
... almost everyone has experienced some time in their life when making ends meet was even more difficult than usual.
Perhaps you had an illness in the family. Or perhaps your child needed braces for straighter teeth.
Maybe you had one or more children in college. Or maybe you unexpectedly had to repair the family car or replace an old furnace.
The point is -- most of us know that horrible feeling of not being able to make ends meet. For a number our neighbors, it's something they're experiencing right now. They’re wondering where their next meal come from.
Tragedies like a sudden job loss or divorce can leave a family stranded.
I know -- because they call on the phone to ask for help. They come in person for something to eat, or something to take home to feed their families.
When times get difficult, often people simply don't know where to turn. Usually that's when they turn to The Salvation Army. Why?
Because we've been here for years, extending a helping hand to people in our community who need us. That's the reason we're here.
Therefore, I'd like to ask for your help so that we can continue to be here for our friends and neighbors need.
Will you send a gift to help us keep food on hand for families who have run out?
Your support can make all the difference for a struggling family who just can't make ends meet.
Together, we can fill in the gap until they get back on their feet.

For the neediest children in Palm Beach County, the simple
joys of a childhood summer may seem unattainable.
These at-risk kids will spend their summer wandering the streets
or hanging out with other idle kids -- many of them bad influences… a recipe
for trouble. But The Salvation Army can help struggling local families
avoid such an outcome for their children.
Through donations, underprivileged Palm Beach County kids get
to attend camp where they play sports, swim, explore the outdoors and make
crafts. And beyond the recreation, they learned how to deal with the
troubling issues and concerns that challenge them in their daily lives.
The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County is currently seeking
sponsorship Funding for Summer Camp 2014.
At a Salvation Army Summer Camp, kids are able to learn and
thrive. They soak up valuable lessons and learn positive life
skills. Kids involved in our camps are able to connect with
counselors who care and who listen to them. They are able to gain
confidence in themselves and make right choices. Our youth make
lasting memories and a lasting change. They not
only see the joy and potential in themselves but also in God.
If you are interested in supporting The
Salvation Army of Palm Beach County Summer Camp program please mail your check
to a location nearest you. Designate funding for summer camp by including a
note or simply writing summer camp on the memo line.
