CARING: Coming in from the cold
The winter 2007 issue of Caring magazine is on its way to press.
The theme of this issue is “Coming in from the cold.” Several social services programs that are designed to warm those chilled by cold weather are featured. However; programs that aid those suffering from a spiritual chill, or lives frozen by addictions are also included.

Explaining the Army
Caring is dedicated to describing not just what the Army does, but why the Army does it. It is designed for anyone who needs to know more about the Army and its work.
Captain Edward Hill, corps officer of the Pasadena Tabernacle Corps, recently ordered subscriptions for the entire advisory board and is very happy with the results. Said Hill, “I ordered subscriptions to Caring Magazine for our Advisory Board because I realized it was the best vehicle available to educate and encourage our community volunteers regarding the scope and quality of Salvation Army services….I also am encouraged by the focus on corps based ministries which is, of course, the foundation for most of what we accomplish in the Army. I have received very positive feedback from board members who are receiving and enjoying the magazine.”
