Christmas Giving: The Salvation Army
St. Cloud Eye Clinic is honored to have been able to give back to The Salvation Army, one of our community’s great service organizations. The Salvation Army is committed to doing good within our community, and we appreciate their efforts.
In 2016, The Salvation Army provided more than 58,000 meals and 255 tons of food to families within our community, not to mention the lodging it provided to community members. Last year, The Salvation Army’s 69 bed shelter allowed for 21,968 nights of shelter for people. One in every four residents is a child.
Each Christmas, our team comes together for our annual Christmas food drive. In previous years, we have sponsored a family through our Christmas giving, but this year, we decided to support The Salvation Army. Our staff committed to collecting food, clothing, toys, and other items for our 2016 annual staff Christmas food drive. The team collected over 169 pounds of resources, which we were honored to share with The Salvation Army in support of its great work.
We thank The Salvation Army for its abundant and important work. We are thankful to have been able to play a small role in The Salvation Army’s mission of service to our community.
