Salvation Army Augusta new hood

“On behalf of the Salvation Army in Augusta, I would like to thank your organization again for your generosity. Although it took longer than expected, we have finally completed our renovation and replaced our soup kitchen’s hood and fire suppression system. Your grant award helped us secure additional funding for the project. It also helped spark new support for other desperately needed renovations in our soup kitchen.”  Susan Meehan, Salvation Army Augusta
