The Salvation Army, an evangelical church founded by Gen. William Booth in 1865,
The Salvation Army, an evangelical church founded by Gen. William Booth in 1865, has five million members in 99 countries. Last year, the Army's familiar black kettles brought in $155,000 for the Portland corps. New restrictions imposed by retailers will result in the loss of 228 kettle collection days this year, which could translate into a one-third drop in revenues. The Portland corps over the last year housed 438 homeless teens, delivered 40,000 meals-on-wheels to the elderly, assisted 37,000 people through its family emergency services program and made 8,000 hospital visits.
