The Arc of Volusia gives back…

In 1891, Salvation Army Captain Joseph McFee began collecting money because so many poor individuals in San Francisco were going hungry. During the holiday season, he resolved to provide a free Christmas dinner for the destitute and poverty-stricken. He only had one major hurdle to overcome — funding the project.  Today the Salvation Army is providing a holiday meal for over 4 million people and this year The Arc of Volusia is helping that cause by volunteering 1 day a week throughout the 2016 Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.  You can support the program participants at the Daytona Walmart from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Thursday and at the DeLand Walmart from 9 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. each Friday through December 22nd.  Please stop by and support The Arc of Volusia as we give back to the community.
