Just a phone call away…

Donated phone cards will go to those in need.

The Salvation Army in the Western Territory has received 229,135 telephone calling cards with 100 free minutes per card—the result of court action concerning uncollected lawsuit funds. All 10 divisions, the Adult Rehabilitation Center (ARC) Command, and the College for Officer Training at Crestmont have received a supply of cards and are currently distributing them to field units across the territory. Every corps, program, and ARC in the Western Territory will receive cards for use through their regular programming and holiday services.

These cards are for anyone in need. No restrictions are placed on use other than that they are for domestic (U.S.) calls only, and possibly calls to Canada because of the close linkage between the U.S. and Canadian phone systems.

Because of America’s highly mobile society, extended family relationships are sometimes lost. Kids often do not know their grandparents, and seniors miss out on the blessing of having grandchildren close at hand. For Salvation Army clients experiencing unemployment and financial challenges, this separation is often exacerbated by lack of email and inability to afford long distance phone charges. Now these hardships can be made a little less difficult—family members can get back in touch and grandparents can hear the sound of young voices.

As always, The Salvation Army is responding to the economic downturn with increases in services for basic needs—food, clothing and shelter. Now the Army has a new way of helping families stay together.
