The Santa Clarita City Council recognized the Salvation Army’s Santa Clarita Valley Corps at the Council’s meeting Tuesday night.

Opened in July 2014, the Salvation Army Santa Clarita Valley Corps has since been committed to “doing the most good” in the Santa Clarita Valley and providing hope to those who need it most. The Corps operates a food pantry, provides many with utility assistance, holds weekly church service, provides Christmas services to families in need in the community and last year sent more than 160 children to summer camp.

This past holiday season, with the generous help of both volunteers and donors, the Salvation Army SCV Corps was able to provide a Christmas for hundreds of families, children and elderly in the Santa Clarita Valley.

At the City Council Meeting, Mayor Weste thanked the Santa Clarita Valley Corps for their ser-vice to the community saying, “I have no words to describe the importance of the role the Salva-tion Army and the Santa Clarita Valley Corps play in our city. The City Council would like to commend and congratulation this organization for its work.”

City Councilmember Bob Keller shared a personal story of his connection with the Salvation Army and the impact the organization has had on him. When his mother was struck with tragedy and suddenly deemed a young orphan in the 1930s, it was the Salvation Army that took her in. Keller echoed his support for the army by saying, “The Salvation Army raised my mother and we will never forget them for doing that.”

Present at the City Council meeting to receive the recognition, were Envoys Jerry and Laura Bloom, who run the Salvation Army Corps in Santa Clarita and with them the Corps Advisory Board.

Envoy Jerry Bloom graciously accepted the award saying, “The Santa Clarita Salvation Army Corps gratefully receives this recognition from the City of Santa Clarita and acknowledges this city’s generous citizens without whom we could not be an assist to those who are currently going through difficult times and circumstances.”

While so many think of the Salvation Army during the holiday season when bell ringers are seen in front of stores across the country, it is the help that the Salvation Army provides throughout the year that makes all the difference.

The Salvation Army SCV Corps is always looking for volunteers to assist at the local Corps and while unscheduled drop-off donations are not accepted at this location, monetary donations of any size along with scheduled donations of clothing, hygiene kits and food for the pantry are al-ways very much welcomed.

The SCV Corps is getting ready to gear up for the Spring season which is known as the “Camp-fire Kettle Campaign” that works to send as many local children who have need, to one of the Salvation Army’s summer camps giving them a once in lifetime experience that is often life changing.
