Small Business of the Month – The Salvation Army
Congratulations to the Salvation Army for being recognized as the Greater Jackson Chamber’s August Small Business of the Month!
For 72 years, The Salvation Army has remained steadfast in their commitment to adding value, year-round, to the lives of individuals and families in our greater Jackson community. With the consistent support of community members, their efforts will continue to create positive change, enhancing lives and spreading hope.
The mission is to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in his name without discrimination.
The Salvation Army has been a beacon of hope and support in our community, touching countless lives with their unwavering commitment to serving those in need. From fighting poverty, enrichment services to the youth, offering food to the hungry and offering assistance in times of disaster, they truly embody the spirit of compassion and selflessness.
The work is multifaceted and includes service to seniors through the monthly program for Senior Adults Living Triumphantly (S.A.L.T.). “S.A.L.T. was birthed in the pandemic and is designed for older adults to come together, enjoy a meal, and learn about resources and other opportunities in our community,” says Captain Cancia.
In addition to that, our food pantry combats the food insecurity often experienced by the disadvantaged and neighbors living on fixed incomes. Twice a week, The Salvation Army distributes produce, meat and snacks to supplement meals needed. Lastly, the Pathway of Hope program and financial assistance initiatives allow the organization to invest in the social determinants of health for youth and others in our community. These activities, initiatives and overall open-door approach all foster community and allow people to live the fullness of life that Christ intends.
At the heart of Jackson/Madison County, the corps of The Salvation Army is “Doing The Most Good” in Gibson, Crockett, Chester, Hardeman, Henderson, Madison, Carroll and Weakley.
