The Salvation Army was founded in 1865 by William Booth, an evangelical minister who spread the idea of a fixed,…More single and traditional standing church as the only means for true worship. Booth formed an organization -- or army -- of evangelists. Today The Salvation Army is known most as a donation center for the elderly, sick and poor.
This center does not accept donations; instead, it is a parish and a house of worship. It houses a day care center and after school program in its quarters facing Kosciusko Street, and it runs a food pantry Monday through Friday from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
