The Salvation Army is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Our message is based on the Bible, our ministry is motivated by the love of God, and our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ as we meet human needs in His name without discrimination. Every program we offer is rooted in our passion to serve God by serving the lost, the vulnerable, the needy, the poor, the hurting, the helpless, and the hopeless.
We are raising funds towards our food pantry. Every month we help over 350 families in the city of La Porte and surrounding areas to have food to take home and eat. Many of the families that we see are waiting for a paycheck to come or food stamps. They need something to help stretch their budget a little further. With the rising of food prices, our numbers have gone up as to how many families we help. We are able to give families fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, pizza, meat, and many other pantry items to help make a meal wonderful. Sometimes we are also able to provide eggs, yogurt, and cheese. Without generous donors like you, we would not be able to help put food on the table for many families in La Porte.
Our goal is to help the whole family. When families come in through our food pantry, we are able to talk with them about what needs they currently have. We then are able to offer more help such as rental assistance, utility assistance, Christmas toys and food, counseling, youth activities, and much more. Just having them walk into the door because they are in need of food, opens up to the many possibilities we have to help all families in need. So donating to our food pantry will help us to have a good supply of food on hand, it also and more importantly opens a door that The Salvation Army can mend bridges and heal souls.
