Niki Litzel from Salvation Army Shares their Story

February 22, 2017 - Niki Litzel, the Community Resources Coordinator of the Salvation Army of Waterloo/Cedar Falls, spoke to our club on February 22nd.  She gave an informative talk of the multi-faceted functions the Salvation Army and how they provide faith-based social services for the communities of the Cedar Valley for over 6 generations.  They provide much needed services with over 1.5 million strong in their work force worldwide and provide these services to 32 million who are served in the U.S. alone.  They are represented in over 127 countries.  

Niki explained about the Disaster Emergency Services, Kitchen, Worship Center, Women’s & Men’s Shelters, Thrift & Charity Shops, and the Red Kettle Program that are provided through their organization.  Eighty three cents out of every dollar that is donated to the Salvation Army, are used directly to help their patrons.  They are always looking for volunteers for their annual fund drive in the Bell Ringer program.

It was quite informative and we were glad to hear about their many accomplishments.  We are glad that we can support them in their activities.  -   written by Lynn Barnes
