Abstract

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.
