Bryan / College Station Salvation Army Press Release:
The Salvation Army’s Red Kettle and Angel Tree programs at Bryan / College Station received a record amount of support this year. The community has given more gifts and made more financial contributions to the Red Kettle than ever before. The Salvation Army would like to thank everyone who volunteered, donated and helped make the Red Kettle and the Angel Tree a success. These exceptional results allow the Salvation Army at Bryan / College Station to serve a record number of people during the Christmas season and in the months to come. Any additional funds raised on December 24 or until the end of the year will help support our New Pathway of Hope initiative.
Pathway of Hope (PWOH) is a social service initiative that aims to break the generational cycle of poverty and homelessness. This program offers a holistic approach that includes spiritual counseling as well as strengths-based case management that lasts up to two years. While enrolled in PWOH, clients may receive services such as job training, childcare and education, housing assistance, and community referrals. This program is life changing for families who are ready to participate in their own success towards positive change. There are great incentives in this program which are currently being used by registered families. If a family is engaged and ready to change, then they must take the first step in reaching out to begin their PWOH journey.
