The volunteers at The Salvation Army were pleased to offer their guests samples of their original recipe doughnut holes and doughnuts. Made with the same recipe used to make doughnuts for the armed forces during World War I, the samples were not only delicious, but, gave one the sense that they were tasting a piece of history! However, this organization has far more to be proud of than just their doughnuts! Both they and the neighbors they serve should be proud of the vast array of services and support they offer to those who need it most including, but not limited to ...

  • free shelter
  • food
  • clothing
  • medical care
  • educational classes
  • vocational assessments
  • substance abuse counseling
  • mental health counseling
  • domestic violence counseling
  • and more
