Since 1890, armed with tambourines and a mission to serve, The Salvation Army held its first meeting in Delaware. More than 200 voices were lifted in song and prayer in the second story of 220 Market Street. Although our location has changed, the mission of The Salvation Army in the State of Delaware remains as it began 125 years ago. The work and ministry will continue to grow providing human outreach by offering spiritual, emotional and assistance to people in need. Check out the article from delaware online celebrating our 125th anniversary!
Annual Civic Recognition Dinner
The Salvation Army of Delaware will host its annual dinner on October 17, 2016 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. Every year we gather to recognize those who have contributed so much to our efforts and our mission in Delaware. The Silent Auction begins at 6:00pm – so be sure to bid on a vast array of bargains from area retailers, and some truly extraordinary, original artwork and pottery.
Michael Waite with the Blood Bank of Delmarva will be joining us again this year as our Master of Ceremonies after doing an inspirational job last year. Our Keynote Speaker will be Ukee Washington, CBC Philadelphia news anchor.
Funds raised at the event will support the operation of The Salvation Army’s Crisis Alleviation Programs throughout Delaware. Join us as we enjoy a delicious meal and the company of Friends of The Salvation Army.
