Considering those in need, sheltering families

The Salvation Army of North Florida celebrated its third annual Red Shield Ball at the Deerwood Country Club, Oct. 23. The annual event helps to grow programs and heighten awareness related to services offered at the area’s Red Shield Lodges. One of our area’s longest serving nonprofits, the Salvation Army’s lodges continue to be a place of respite for those experiencing difficult times.

Last year, 133 families stayed at the lodge and 1,022 individuals, including 332 children, were served. In addition to providing shelter, services are also provided for families to help solve critical issues. Crisis intervention, counseling, personal finance, parenting skills, child development, and stress management, as well as health and wellness initiatives, are just a few of the programs offered by the staff at the Red Shield Lodge. This year’s honorary chairs were Mrs. Edward W. Lane, Jr. and Mrs. C. Herman Terry.
