This Sunday, May 1, at 7:30 pm, a Community Prayer and Worship service will be hosted by The Salvation Army and Christ United Methodist Church in memory and support of all those affected by the recent devastating tornados.
Special music will be performed by the professional singing group, The Sydney Songsters, from Australia. A love offering for tornado victims will be received. The service will be held at Christ United Methodist Church on Old Canton Road. The public is invited to attend.
The MS Braves will host an evening for The Salvation Army, Monday May 2, 2011 during their regularly scheduled game. Clothing donations – new and used - will be accepted by The Salvation Army of Greater Jackson, beginning at 5:30 pm at Trustmark Park.
Those donating a 30 gallon bag or more of clothing will get into the game for ONLY $2! The game will begin with a special performance of the Star Spangled Banner by The Sydney Songsters.
The Salvation Army has 10 mobile feeding units deployed to storm-ravaged areas. Each unit can feed hot meals to 1000 people a day. Two of these units are from The Salvation Army of Greater Jackson, and are serving victims in Oxford, MS. Staff of these roving canteens also provide spiritual and emotional care for victims and responders.
Response and relief efforts will extend into the coming weeks. The most effective form of support is through financial donations. Monetary donations provide economic support of affected areas as well as an immediate answer to specific needs.
