Across our nation, the “safer at home” mandate has limited our interaction with those we love. Business, schools and churches all deemed “unnecessary” have closed their doors. But it is with their doors closed that many have opened their hearts more than ever before, particularly the church at large.
With hearts wide open, many continue to look for ways to help those who are being impacted by the COVID-19 crisis the most. One of the ways people have found is partnering with the Salvation Army’s new #LetsFightTogether campaign. Churches like Mosaic, Bel Air Presbyterian Church and Shepherd of the Hills have already donated more than 5,000 rolls of toilet paper, 20,000 paper towels and thousands of feminine hygiene products.
“It was a no-brainer decision for us,” said Rev. Dr. Drew Sams, Senior Pastor at Bel Air Church. “We know there are millions of people in desperate need right now, so we were more than happy to give away what we can’t currently use.”
#LetsFightTogether campaign’s initiative is to provide the latest updates on COVID-19, including real-world solutions for communities and families, encouraging news and to discover all the ways the Salvation Army is linking arms with our fellow Americans to aid those devastated by coronavirus across the country.
“When it feels too big to fight it alone, let’s fight together!”
Rev. Dr. Drew Sams reminds us, “[The] Salvation Army has always been a trustworthy friend and partner, and we know they will distribute these items to those with the greatest need.”
We are very lucky to have people who we can trust—people who are looking out for “the interests of others” (Philippians 2:4). To partner with these churches and the #LetsFightTogether initiative please visit their website or click here to donate directly.
