Texarkana Salvation Army Has Great Volunteer Opportunies This Holiday Season
As most of us start pulling out the Christmas decorations it is also a time to reflect on all of our blessings and it's also a great time to think about those in need. How would you like to help? You can by volunteering some of your time to the special programs the Salvation Army has been hard on over the past several months.
The Salvation Army red kettles are appearing outside our local stores, and you will also see the Angel Trees being set up. The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers to help them ensure that the men, women and children in need in our community can have a wonderful Christmas.
