Community Voices Showcase

Salvation Army 

The Community Voices Case is highlighting the community work of the Salvation Army. Countless volunteers across the country and in Monroe County spend their time ringing bells for the Red Kettle donation program to help vulnerable members of our community and that work is on display in our Community Voices Case. Additionally, the Salvation Army’s “Coats for Kids” program, which provides free winter coats and clothing to children in need in our community, is also highlighted in the case – and you can help! The History Center is a collection site for the “Coats for Kids” program and if you donate two children’s coats of any size, you will receive a free, year-long family membership to the History Center! Please consider donating to children in need in our community and come in to see the new display.
