Adopting homeless children and their parents living in shelters for one day is one of A Time to Help’s most cherished activities. The residents of the shelters are enormously touched by the generosity of volunteers and sponsors. Having a special party in their honor with tons of needed gifts, food, arts and crafts, games, Santa, and more is heart-warming for both residents and volunteers.
The Salvation Army, a non-profit organization, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its ministry includes social services programs for those needing assistance in many areas like disaster relief, temporary housing, food distribution, or addiction recovery without discrimination to race, color or creed.
