Salvation Army Prepares to Mark 100 Years

November 16, 2011

The Salvation Army will be celebrating 100 years of service in Charlottesville February 12. To help celebrate the milestone, organizers are asking people to share stories and pictures of how the Salvation Army has helped them.

"It amazes me how some things have changed dramatically and some things have not, it is still the same basic thing of meeting peoples needs that they have at that moment," said Major Melinda Johnson of the Salvation Army.

Organizers say they plan to create a website in honor of the anniversary. They also hope the milestone will inspire people will volunteer their time to the service. The Salvation Army serves nearly 30 million Americans in need of assistance each year.
