The Salvation Army – Doing the most good.
   The Salvation Army of Battle Creek would like to thank all of our friends in Calhoun and Barry Counties.
Without you, we would not be able to do the most good this Christmas Season.
You helped in so many ways:
• Giving at the red kettle or mailing in a donation check.
• Sponsoring an angel tree or adopting a family.
• Dropping off a gift for a child or planning to help with the toy shop.
• Donating food for Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets.
• Serving a meal or packing a food box.
• Volunteering to ring the bell in the Red Kettle Christmas Campaign.
• Taking Christmas basket applications
• Bringing a gift to a shut in or nursing
home resident.
• So many other ways.
Because of what you did, The Sal- vation Army will help thousands of people in our community, at Christmas, and throughout the coming year.
The Salvation Army of Battle Creek serves residents of Calhoun and Barry Counties through the following year round programs:
• Sunday School at 9:45pm and Worship service at 11:00am each Sunday.

The Salvation Army strives to be timely and efficient as it examines and addresses needs within a community. It continues to seek ways to change people’s lives by elevating the human spirit through the gift of Christian love. We lift people up – get them on their feet – help them grow in all dimensions of life.
Volunteers truly are integral to The Salvation Army’s effective- ness. They broaden its range of effectiveness by bringing new points of view and fresh approaches. Their feedback leads to enhanced programs and even beginning new services. They are natural liaisons with the broader community, as well.
