The Salvation Army of Metro Atlanta wants to hear your story

The Salvation Army swoops in when there are disasters. The nonprofit provides shelter for the homeless and feeds thousands every year.

Here are the numbers:

Nearly 7,000 children and teens helped through enrichment programs;  more than 161,000 meals served; and more than 147,000 nights of shelter provided.

But the numbers only tell part of the story.

Now the Salvation Army of Metro Atlanta wants your help to tell the rest.

The nonprofit, which will celebrate 130 years of serving metro Atlanta, is asking people to share their stories of how the Salvation Army helped them.

The Salvation Army has launched a campaign, “130 Years of Impact,” to collect 130 stories from individuals whose lives were affected by the organization.

Readers can find those stories on the Salvation Army’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Linkedin accounts.
