[March 18, 2010]  Do you have a personal story about The Salvation Army to share? Maybe a family story your mother or father or grandparent once told you? Or a story from your own recent experience?

HardwareIf you do, Rebecca Van Nydeggen, director of The Salvation Army of Logan County, wants to hear from you. You can share your story with her this month as The Salvation Army celebrates 130 years of service in the United States.

The Salvation Army has been serving the residents of Logan County for more than 100 years. Throughout the year, eligible Logan County residents receive assistance with utility shut-off prevention, food pantry, eviction prevention and life-sustaining prescription medication costs, as well as casework support and social service agency referrals. During the holiday season, needy families receive assistance through community sponsorship of the Adopt-a-Family outreach programs.

Salvation Army Emergency Disaster Services is on standby at any time to provide support to disaster victims with both immediate emergency assistance and long-term recovery. The Salvation Army also provides support to first responders, such as police, fire and emergency medical personnel, during periods of sustained disaster or other emergency operations.
