The Salvation Army Looking for "Angels" to Sponsor Local Children

The Salvation Army Looking for "Angels" to Sponsor Local Children

Hiking in the woods, making crafts, singing songs by the campfire − some of our fondest childhood memories come from summer camp. For the neediest children in the Knoxville area, these simple joys seem unattainable. These at-risk kids will spend their summer wandering the streets or hanging out with other idle kids – a recipe for trouble. However, The Salvation Army can help struggling local families avoid this outcome for their children.
