It is the very courtesy of God which is the reason why so often we miss him. He comes to us in such unobtrusive ways in the person of someone in need, in the goodness of those we take for granted, in beauty we are too preoccupied to notice, in a quiet moment we are too busy to use.

Cadets assist at Denver Red Shield
It was a weekend of celebration and fun for Cadets Luis and Korina Acosta and the Denver Red Shield Corps, Colo. On Saturday, July 31, the Acostas assisted Envoys Ron and Roberta McKinney in hosting Red Shield’s monthly Corps Family Day. The corps held a picnic which included a burger and hot dog barbecue, swimming, volleyball, fishing, and rides on a pontoon boat provided by the generous donation of Ivan Tate, a member of the Red Shield Advisory Council. On Sunday, the cadets assisted the McKinneys in the enrollment ceremony for two senior soldiers and five adherents.

Anchorage Pancake Feed
Helps Fight Hunger
Hundreds of hungry Alaskans arrived early at the Delany Park Strip in Anchorage on July 4th ready to enjoy a hot pancake breakfast. The event, in its third year, raised over $3,500 to benefit The Salvation Army’s McKinnell House for homeless families and Kid’s Café, a local non-profit that provides nutritious meals to hungry children.
Chef Al Levinsohn, featured weekly in his own cooking segment on the KTUU Channel 2 Morning News, has volunteered his time to flip pancakes at the event for the past two years. The success of the breakfast, in large part, is from the support of local businesses, particularly TOTE, who sponsors the event so that the agencies receive 100% of revenue from ticket sales.

Charley victims
The Salvation Army continues to work 24 hours a day to meet immediate needs of residents and emergency response personnel affected by Hurricane Charley. As clean-up efforts increase and rebuilding begins, the Army has started to transition from an emergency response phase to a long-term recovery phase. Salvation Army personnel and volunteers served nearly 430,000 meals; 55 canteens continue to move through neighborhoods providing meals and emotional support. The Army also has 13 comfort stations in centralized locations, providing residents with food, water, social service assistance and counseling.

Twenty-five of the 400 Kaiser Permanente-Bellflower Medical Center “Hearts at Work” volunteers spent a day beautifying the Compton Corps Community Center, reports Jaime Garcia, director of Public Affairs for Kaiser Permanente. Corps Officer Capt. Martin Ross expressed appreciation for all the work the volunteers did, including constructing new cabinets for the food pantry, creating a recycling area, cleaning up the playground and adding playground equipment.
