Salvation Army Red Shield Club Ribbon Cutting

September 16th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

The Allegany County Chamber of Commerce recently held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for The Salvation Army to celebrate the grand opening of their Red Shield Club (Boys and Girls Club).  For over 50 years The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs have been unique places created by The Salvation Army that offer programs and services that exemplify and actively practice Christian principles. This is done in a way that causes recipients of their services to learn to admire the values, ethics and skills presented, and incorporate them into their own lives. To reach today’s young people and their families in a non-threatening way, their Clubs create an accepting, positive and challenging environment where young people of every background, circumstance, race, creed and religion feel welcomed. Clubs offers children and youth an opportunity to interact with their peers in a structured and supervised environment.
