Raise awareness: Children!

Last summer I had the opportunity to spend some time with children who were attending the summer day camp program at The Salvation Army in Irving.

The children at the day camp were challenged to raise money to help The Salvation Army in Kenya. (I blogged about their success- click here to read the story.)

Shortly after my visit, I reflected on how the children’s lives were changed by going to the summer day camp. You could see their faces full of joy and could tell how much The Salvation Army DFW really cares about children.

I've got good news! We offer more than just summer day camp.

Through our programs like sports clinics, music lessons, after school care, homework tutoring, and character building courses, the children are inspired, encouraged, and most importantly, shown Christ’s love.

Take a look at these precious faces. These pictures document all the wonderful things children get to do at a The Salvation Army DFW center.

I’m asking the folks who care about children to make it a point to raise awareness.

Zig Ziglar may have said it best. “Our children are our only hope for the future, but we are their only hope for their present and their future.”

What can you do?

1. Tell everyone you know that helping children is a cause you really care about.

2. Regularly post updates on your Facebook/Twitter page that raise awareness about The Salvation Army DFW’s children’s programs.

3. Volunteer to help/mentor/ teach children at a Salvation Army DFW center.

4. Financially support The Salvation Army DFW. Visit—
