Here are some additional numbers:

5: The number of completed and opened Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Centers this last year; there are now 17 completed centers throughout the country.

$3.24 billion: The amount the Army spent serving people—an increase from $3.12 billion in 2009.

82 cents: …of every dollar spent went toward Salvation Army program services.
