Sarah moved with her husband and son hoping that a new location might be the end of her old life.

Unfortunately, her husband brought his controlling, abusive behavior with him. When she finally mustered the courage to speak up about his unloving treatment, he left her and took their son.

Alone, broke and devastated, Sarah asked one of our Red Kettle bell ringers where she could go to get some food. Not surprisingly, the bellringer directed her to The Salvation Army.

We thank God for the opportunities He gives us to love people like Sarah.
