from the

Advisory Board Chairman

Serving as The Salvation Army’s Advisory Board chairman in High Point this past year has been an exciting and rewarding experience. It has been a great honor to work alongside The Salvation Army’s dedicated staff as they tirelessly serve those in need. But all their efforts would not be possible if it were not for your caring and concern. Just as the needy rely on The Salvation Army, the Army relies on the community to provide the necessary support to continue our many services and programs. On behalf of The Salvation Army Advisory Board and staff, I thank you for your generosity in the past year. I trust that you will continue to join with us as we remain committed to doing the most good in High Point. Sincerely,

Bill Goodman, Advisory Board Chairperson


Local activity Volunteering When The Salvation Army hits the streets in our community during an emergency situation–whether it is a man-made disaster, a local fire, or the emergency of a natural disaster–there is always an auxiliary contingent of volunteers from the community to help. Often called “the army behind the Army,” these donors are more than just curbside observers. Buttons reading “Doing the most good” are regularly pinned to business suits, kitchen aprons, overalls, and designer sportswear. The people that those uniforms represent come from literally all walks of life to offer advice, Christmas pies, strong backs, and large donations. It might be a hand-crocheted afghan donated by an elderly woman, given eventually to a needy contemporary. It might be thousands of dollars in corporate grants to fund an important mission in High Point. It might be the unusual sight of a weekend biker with a 6-foot-tall stuffed animal that’s perched on a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. Whatever form it takes, volunteer service is not something to be taken for granted. The Salvation Army in High Point regularly recognizes its partners in service with trophies, local civic dinners, notes of appreciation, and sincere friendship. But these volunteers know that the debt of gratitude is reciprocal. They know that by devoting their lives to service, Salvation Army soldiers stand in the gap between the haves and the have-nots. They provide an invaluable service as intercessors. They are the vessels of genuine compassion and concern on the part of society’s givers to those who so desperately need that attention.

Honoring Volunteers Hundreds of Salvation Army programs are made possible through the time and effort of more than 3,539,000 volunteers nationwide. Locally, The Salvation Army of High Point had 11,425 volunteers for a total of 25,232 hours. This saved The Salvation Army $182,932. Volunteer’s time and efforts are valued and needed. Food shelf workers, Corps Community Center program leaders, and Sunday school teachers; emergency and disaster services teams; Family Store clerks; and Toy Shop elves are all volunteers. And they come from all walks of life, using their talents to strengthen the programs that serve their communities and our community.

Local activity A Child’s Story

Boys and Girls Club The Salvation Army’s Boys and Girls Club of High Point is a second home to many youth throughout the community. The youth who attend the Club in the summertime or during the school year for after-school care become a part of the family at the Club. Each staff member and volunteer strives to provide Club members with the essential tools they need to become productive citizens in the future. The Club has a line of tested and proven nationally recognized programs

There are multiple field trips throughout the year as well, including places such as the High Point Museum, Theatre Art Galleries, High Point Swim Club, the YWCA for swimming and pottery classes, bowling, roller skating, ice skating, the Natural Science Center, and much more.

The Club can only function with good volunteers. The most important opportunity is the Advisory Council. The Council is comprised of caring individuals who like to make a brighter future for the children who are served at the Club. The Council members serve on various committees that help the day-to-day operations of the Club. Anyone interested in helping a child are encouraged to contact the Club staff to get involved.


from the

Commanding Officer

As you review the contents of this annual report, you will note the thousands of lives that were touched by our many ministries last year in Greater High Point. We were able to offer hope and new beginnings to those who were in need. Meeting people at their point of need and communicating the love of God through practical expressions of compassion is the mission of The Salvation Army. It is a big job, and the needs will only increase as our community continues to grow and change. But with YOUR SUPPORT and encouragement, The Salvation Army will continue doing the most good, carrying out our commitment of meeting material and spiritual needs. May God bless you. In His service,

Tony Perez, Captain, Commanding Officer

Local activity Shelter

“Flip that Room!”

The Salvation Army shelter programs are designed to meet women and families’ needs in a safe environment. Underlying these programs is a motivation to identify the causes of homelessness and work to alleviate or eliminate homelessness at its source. During a stay at The Salvation Army shelter, clients will participate in programs and workshops developed to promote self-sufficiency, personal development and spiritual wellness. The Salvation Army also works with clients to help them transition into a more permanent housing situation.

With help from First United Methodist Church of High Point children, one of our shelter rooms has been renovated. The children’s group collected pennies and ended up rounding up over $894! The church group then solicited for matching furniture. Below are pictures of the before and after.

On-site case workers, along with the clients, develop an extensive goal-oriented program. Case workers continually motivate clients to meet these goals. In turn, clients are given responsibilities around the center, including life skills and other applicable tasks. Over the past year, 59,856 meals were served and 17,937 individuals slept in a safe environment throughout the year from both programs. Before
