Salvation Army – Start national collection week 2019
By striking the gong, commissioner Hannelise Tvedt, Territorial Commander of The Salvation Army in The Netherlands, opens trading at the stock exchange in Amsterdam. This marks the start of the national collection week of The Salvation Army.
From 25 till 30 November, volunteers of The Salvation Army will go door to door with their collection boxes. The proceeds of this annual collection go to local activities to combat social exclusion and loneliness. More and more people stand alone these days and a lot of them cannot manage on their own. The Salvation Army wants to offer an open door and inclusive fellowship to these people, including providing meal projects, debt counselling, second hand clothing shops and a soup bus.
The Salvation Army does not receive any public subsidies for these activities, they are fully funded by private donations. That is why The Salvation Army organizes a national collection week each year.
The Salvation Army is a Christian movement that offers help to anyone – without exceptions.
