I Got Help from the Salvation Army!

(The Third Annual Pay it Forward November Challenge)

Hosted by Belinda Spillman 


Every year, we contribute to one of our favorite Charities, the Salvation Army, as they do a lot for the community. Our local MLS, the Elkhart County Board of REALTORS® raises money through a Holiday Auction they have at this time every year at the Matterhorn Restaurant and Conference Center, in Elkhart..

The Food Bank of Elkhart County was another charity that we helped in the past. The food bank system here, has now changed to a regional distribution center in another county. Our local church, Harvest Community Church has partnered with the Salvation Army in collecting food, for those who will need their help during this season, so we were still able to help, thanks to the Salvation Army.

They supplied boxes for those who wanted to help the Salvation Army in their food drive.  We were glad to participate, so we took a box and headed to the grocery store and had fun picking out the items to fill it up.

I am looking forward to this years auction in a couple of weeks, so we can add to the blessings that the Salvation Army provides. We try to be creative on our auction item.  Here are a few of our past items that raised money from both ECBOR and the Builders Association of Elkhart County during the past couple of years.

We were still able to help distribute food for

our community,

with a little help from my friends.



Thanks to the "The Salvation Army"!

The Salvation Army is fabulous.  I have personal experience with being on the receiving end from them after a tornado in my town 24 years ago next week. It would have been a sad Christmas for my 4 year old without them that year.

Good morning Larry.  A great organization that often is not recognized for all the work it does behind the scene

The Salvation Army is one of the most efficient charities to donate to is one is concerned whether donations are lining the pockets of the top management. These are good folks and a worthy charity.

All very worthwhile charities.  The Army will be out soon with their traditional kettles in our area.

The Salvation Army is a great place and I know that it has helped so many people over the years!  My parents have always donated their stuff to the Salvation Army and I beleive that making sure nobody goes hungry is one of the most important things in the world.

Hi Larry -- Evelyn Johnston and your support of the Salvation Army is admirable.  Of course, I never doubted that your contribution would be enhanced by your creativity.

That is awesome.  I hate the thought of people going hungry in our world and you are doing your part to make those tummies a little fuller.

Oh yeah! I remember making some of those auction items up! I think we put $100 worth of lotto tickets in that treasure chest and it brought close to $500 in. What will we come up with this year?
