The Quincy Salvation Army has been serving the needs of the greater Adams County area for more than 122 years. And the Army plans to continue that tradition with the unveiling of a new Hometown Endowment Fund campaign.
The goal is to provide anyone who turns to The Salvation Army for help with the support and skills they’ll need to become self-sufficient. Over the years, the number of people we aid continues to grow; and with the dramatic increases in requests for assistance over the past several years, financial resources are seldom able to keep pace with this ever-growing need for assistance.
Enter The Hometown Endowment Fund — a special fund created to assure continuous and stable funding for the emergency shelter and family services programs offered by The Salvation Army. It makes available now, as well as in the future, a source of income to support programs that assist individuals and families in need. The Hometown Endowment Fund preserves the principal and provides earnings and interest to be utilized for operations and programs.
The fund is an ideal vehicle to provide the stability to grow along with the needs of the Quincy community and surrounding area, of which The Salvation Army works hand-in-hand with each day to meet the needs of those less fortunate. As long as there are needs to be met, The Salvation Army stands ready to serve, making a difference one life at a time, and, above all, doing the most good.
