Katie Curler’s very own fashion blog has been featured on the CBS Sacramento list of TOP FASHION BLOGS. The article is as follows!

FROM SACRAMENTO.CBSLOCAL.COM:

“Katie Curler loves a bargain and blogs about how to create fashionable, flattering looks from thrift store finds. Photographs of movie stars and other glamorous celebs are interspersed with pics of Curler modeling similar thrift store styles, and she does not limit her advice just to clothing. Jewelry, shoes, belts and other accessories are discussed and featured as well. Readers are invited to send in photos of high-fashion attire, and Curler will search Sacramento thrift stores for comparable styles. She recently began a YouTube series called “Ask Katie,” featuring advice on current fashions that can be found at Salvation Army thrift stores. Curler, modeling a leopard-print skirt, was included in an InStyle magazine piece and has been featured in several posts on Thrift Town’s fashion blog”

Keep a Child Warm this Winter

Three Girls BW

Fall is now in full effect and with winter slowly creeping around the corner, many are starting to prepare to bundle up.

This year, as you transition to warmer clothing, consider decluttering   those bulky winter coats your children no longer wear, and help The Salvation Army keep underprivileged children warm as the temps continue to decline.  Just imagine that feeling of opening your coat closet and actually placing your swiffer in with ease rather than dealing with the daily battle for room with those space eating coats.  And the cherry on top-it’s for a great cause!

The Salvation Army’s annual Coats for Kids program is in full swing and locations nationwide are calling for donations of winter coats and jackets for families that cannot afford proper winter attire.

Just by clearing out your closet, you can make a huge difference in a child’s life.

All new or gently used coats can be taken to one of the many Salvation Army ‘Coats for Kids’ collection drives in various communities across the country. To find a participating Salvation Army near you, enter your zip code here.

If there is not a drive happening in your area, you can always donate gently used or new coats to your local Salvation Army Family Store. Just visit www.satruck.org and find the closet location near you or check out the easy-to-use Salvation Army Family Store App, available on the App Store and Google play, where you can schedule a pickup, find locations and get rewards.

As always, The Salvation Army is grateful for your donations and support!

WORLD FOOD DAY

World Food Day LARGE

FROM THE SALVATION ARMY OFFICIAL BLOG:

Programs of The Salvation Army are as unique as the communities in which they serve, but one thing is for certain: at just about every location, The Salvation Army is serving food to hungry individuals.

Feeding is at the core of The Salvation Army’s services, because it is only after this basic need is met that one can truly provide for a person’s emotional, spiritual, material and financial well-being.

But according to Feeding America, more than 48.8 million people face the threat of hunger daily in the United States. Worldwide, that number jumps to 842 million. That means that one in eight people in the world suffer from chronic hunger and don’t have enough food for an active and healthy life.

Today is World Food Day, a time for us to consider what we might do to help feed our neighbors in need, and there are plenty of ways to get involved in your own hometown and around the globe:

1)      Grab a box, fill it with nonperishable food items, & drop it off at a local food bank. This might include a local charity, church or Salvation Army location. Don’t have excess cans of soup in your cupboard? Grab your grocery store’s deal book – usually crumpled up in your mailbox or sitting outside the store – and stock up on the sale items. Most stores have at least one awesome deal on nonperishable food items when inventory is running high.

2)      Offer your handsVolunteers live longer, did you know that? Soup kitchens, mobile meal programs and community gardens thrive on the help of volunteers like you. Visit www.volunteermatch.org for a list of volunteer opportunities in your area.

3)      Raise awareness: Share the photo above with your friends and encourage dialogue with the hashtag #WFD2013. Need inspiration for what to say to your networks? Click here.

4)      Support food service abroad: The Salvation Army provides food service in 127 countries around the world. This includes services for Syrian refugees in Jordan, as well as residents of southwest India impacted by last week’s devastating cyclone. To support these global food services monetarily, make a quick online donation at https://donate.salvationarmyusa.org/. Or you can text the word INDIA to 80888* to give $10 in support of disaster relief.

Hurricane Sandy: Signs of Recovery Continue One Year Later

FROM THE SALVATION ARMY BLOG:

One year ago, Hurricane Sandy pummeled the East Coast following a four-day northern trek, creating the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2012 season. Affecting 24 states, the storm’s force shattered communities, destroyed homes and businesses, shut down power for millions, and took over 100 lives.

A week before the strike, Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) crews of The Salvation Army were ramping up response efforts by feeding evacuees and developing search and rescue teams.

“We discovered then that our response needed to be more than the hot dog and a cup of coffee,” says Brenda Beavers, State Director of Human Resources for The Salvation Army’s New Jersey Division.

In the immediate aftermath of the storm, EDS canteens were dispatched to the hardest hit areas up and down the coast. With the help of staff and volunteers, meals, drinks, clothing, blankets and toiletries were distributed to victims and first responders. As part of a long-term recovery effort, the Army provided gift cards and in-kind products such as heaters, food, clothing, toys, diapers, linens, boots, and facemasks.

People had lost their homes, their memories, and things you simply can’t replace.

 

Providing relief long after initial impact

But one year later, signs of recovery remain as residents along the Coast work to rebuild their lives through service organizations like The Salvation Army.

“The goal of our Disaster Case Management process is to provide support, advocacy and connect residents with as many possible resources available to them without adding additional work and confusion to their already challenging process,” says Brenda Downing, Director of Social Services at The Salvation Army Southern New England.

Restoring normalcy in the lives of survivors is the Army’s primary objective.

With the support of donors and partnering organizations, affected individuals and families are being met with financial assistance, rebuilding and repair costs, and in-depth case management to address unmet needs.

Homeowners like Ellen Levitsky are grateful for the support of The Salvation Army, which helped clean up her storm-ravaged home in Freeport, New York.

“I never thought anyone would come to help,” Levitsky said. “I feel like I should be pinched. I’m so thankful for the help that The Salvation Army has provided, and how quickly.”

But perhaps more importantly, survivors are finding comfort in the emotional and spiritual care offered through recovery centers and emotional support groups of The Salvation Army in New York and New Jersey.

“A lot of people have been hurting,” says Bram Applin, Community Relations Director for the New Jersey Division. “They are asking, ‘why did this happen?’ Being able to simply pray with someone, hug someone, to be able to show the love of Christ in the little things – it’s a privilege.”

***

The Salvation Army is the first to arrive and the last to leave. Americans showed an outpouring of love and support for their East Coast neighbors in need, and their financial contributions are being used to provide ongoing assistance in all communities impacted by this disaster.
