A note of thanks from the Salvation Army

Dear Sir,

A sincere “Thank you” to the Bermuda community for their generosity and care shown to those persons in need of assistance this past Christmas. Your donations have made a difference in the lives of those seeking assistance through the Salvation Army.

Whether your donations were food or finances, given by school students or families, churches, businesses, corporate donors, community organisations or individuals, all together we have made a difference in many, many lives.

The Salvation Army also wishes to thank the host of volunteers who assisted in preparing, serving and ministering to the many who came for assistance. Some 1,321 families were assisted, with 657 children receiving toys. Almost 2,200 adults, including 449 seniors, received a Christmas hamper.

The help that the Salvation Army provides at Christmas and throughout the year is a reflection of God’s blessings and the generosity of the people of Bermuda. With your continued support, we remain committed to ministering and providing services 365 days a year.

Thank you and may God bless you.

MAJOR FRANK PITTMAN

Divisional Commander
