A Salvation Army year-end in pictures!
For the last few years our National Headquarters staff picks their favorite photos of the year and posts them to their blog on December 31st.
Each of the photos chosen this year were snapped by my colleague John Docter!
The photos provide a great glimpse into The Salvation Army’s world, complete with young musicians, officers (pastors) in training, donut lassies and notables like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jeremy Lin and Luc Robitaille joining us to serve needy people who God loves!

>>> <<< As 2014 comes to an end and we gear up for a brand new year, many are partaking in the traditions of reflection and resolution. For the past three years, we’ve started a little tradition of of compiling some of our favorite photos of The Salvation Army’s work from the past year. We are truly blessed for your generous support and for every dollar donated to our Red Kettles this Christmas season and for the millions of volunteers we see every year. Your generous donations are crucial in fulfilling The Salvation Army’s mission to Do The Most Good.We couldn’t do it without you. Hope you enjoy a look at our work in 2014. Happy New Year!
