    New Beginnings – Salvation Army Breaks Ground on New Office Complex

    SVA-553.5-Fundraiser Web (Page 01)

    (San Bernardino, CA)  The Salvation Army San Bernardino Corps will experience its own new beginning when it breaks ground on a new Community Center building 12 noon on Thursday, Oct. 10.
    The Salvation Army throughout the world is known for helping people get a fresh start in life, and nowhere is this truer than at the San Bernardino Corps. When it completes the remodeling of the former school at 2626 E. Pacific Ave., Highland, it will have greatly expanded facilities to provide youth programs, church services, character building programs, and other community services.
    “I cordially invite you to take part in the ongoing restoration of San Bernardino as we celebrate the groundbreaking for our new community center!” said Major Dan Henderson.   We believe that the best days of the communities that we serve are just ahead of us, and that working together, we will usher in the bright future that we have longed to see!  Don’t miss out on this opportunity to stand together for the good of our community.  I will be looking forward to meeting you on Thursday!
    Since 1887, the San Bernardino Corps has helped residents of the San Bernardino area overcome life’s challenges. Its current service area is San Bernardino, Highland, Bloomington, Colton, Grand Terrace and Rialto.
    Honored guests at the groundbreaking will be San Bernardino Mayor Patrick Morris, Salvation Army Divisional Commander Major Lee Lescano and members of the Salvation Army San Bernardino Corps Advisory Board.
    The Salvation Army will serve a light lunch after the ground-breaking ceremony for those who RSVP.
