              more   Live from Music Row Friday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed the host of Pensive Politics and National Spokesperson for Color Us United Christian Watson to the newsmaker line to discuss how the Salvation Army has gone woke and his hope for them to renounce themselves. Leahy: We are joined on our newsmaker line now by our very good friend, Christian Watson, national spokesperson for Color Us United Christian. The Salvation Army has gone woke. What happened there? Watson: Hello Michael. Nice to be here. The Salvation Army essentially leads to a curriculum called Let’s Talk About Racism. This curriculum, among many other things that are quite offensive and identical, told its members to go ahead and repent on behalf of the church for its racism. And they also did a wall of white supremacy separating Salvationists from one another. And so I just want to reiterate that Color Us United, we love the Salvation...
              moreby Kenny Xu   Rather than admit their woke policies are not supported by donors or staff, the leadership of The Salvation Army hides these policies from the public. Salvation Army captains tell me, however, that mandatory “diversity” training and calls to repent for racism are still very much integral to TSA internal policies. I am president of Color Us United, an organization created to stand up for the individual dignity of ordinary Americans against abusive woke policies. Several months ago Color Us United learned that the Salvation Army had gone woke by imposing a curriculum that asks members to “repent for racism.“ We have called them out publicly on this and even met with their National Commander. Instead of addressing the policies that the majority of their members and donors do not support, however, the Salvation Army has hidden its woke materials. The Salvation Army’s “Let’s Talk About Racism” curriculum endorses books such as Ibram X. Kendi’s How to Be An Antiracist and Robin DiAngelo’s White Fragility. It calls on “White culture” to quit denying racism and admit its responsibility for racism. It calls upon whites...

    Amanda Thomason, The Western Journal March 18, 2021 0 Comments Tom Cornish from Champlin, Minnesota, is a 96-year-old who was in the Navy during World War II and came home to raise five children with his wife, Lorraine. When she passed away, he married again, and he and his wife Marvel made volunteering a huge part of their life. Marvel has since passed away, and with a life full of service, you’d think Cornish had earned his rest — but he’s dedicated to continuing to give back until he can’t anymore. While Cornish started knitting decades ago, last year when things started shutting down, his daughter sent him a knitting kit to make hats using a loom. He gave it a try and hasn’t looked back since. “There’s people here that want me to sell them to them, but I won’t,” he told KARE. “I give them to the Salvation Army.” WWII veteran spends pandemic isolation weaving 400 hats for Salvation Army https://t.co/gQ8bzM9VZH pic.twitter.com/43EwuLCZGp — WPXI (@WPXI) March 17, 2021 In fact, he’s made 400 hats so far...

    Plummeting temperatures are forcing people indoors seeking warmth. But for those who call city streets home, heading inside is not always a realistic option. Homelessness across the US is reaching record highs, due to the economic impact of coronavirus. And as shelters deal with increased occupancy, the pandemic also poses immense safety challenges to people seeking refuge. It all leads to an increase in people literally stuck out in the cold. Instead of walking by, here are a few ways you can help: Locate a shelter or warming center From your smartphone you can connect someone you believe to be experiencing homelessness with support. The Salvation Army claims to have a presence in nearly every zip code across the country. And every location can serve as a warming station. “The pandemic has been laid on top of an epidemic. The epidemic of homelessness in our country has been a tragedy, and the pandemic has made that challenge all the greater,” says Salvation Army Commissioner Kenneth Hodder. The organization is tailoring responses to fit the unique needs of each of its...
    Orange County homeless residents are getting some protection from winter with the reopening of a former Salvation thrift store that was converted into a shelter. The Santa Ana facility, which originally opened during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic last March, reopened on February 8. Up to 55 people will be able to sleep overnight in the shelter, where they will be provided cots, meals, showers, a TV room and hospital-style bathrooms. In order to sleep in the shelter, residents must be picked up by a shuttle service at specific locations to eliminate foot traffic, said Marie Chio, logistics manager for Citynet, a nonprofit behind the shelter. « We are in a neighborhood, there is some industry, but right across the street, there is a large apartment complex, » Chio told The Epoch Times. « And we also have a small complex right next to us, so to eliminate foot traffic, we have the three pick-up locations and the three drop-off locations that were approved by the city. » Pickup locations include Walnut Street on First Street next to the Social Services...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — It’s a simple trade: give a coat, get a cookie. People dropped off coats at Vanille Patisserie in Lincoln Park to get a sweet treat.

    (CBS4) – The Salvation Army red kettle campaign for people to “help rescue Christmas for their neighbors in need” is going virtual this year. Due to coronavirus, you’ll see fewer of those bell ringers outside stores. The Salvation Army is hoping instead you’ll make a donation to their efforts to help those who are struggling financially online at denvermetroredkettle.org. That’s especially as they see a huge jump in need due to the pandemic. All donations made at denvermetroredkettle.org will go towards the Salvation Army’s efforts in the Denver metro area.
    Each holiday season, there’s no mistaking the sound of the Salvation Army’s bell and iconic red kettle on street corners and outside local retailers. It’s a symbol of goodwill and a reminder of what Christmas is all about. Boy donates coins during holiday season Last holiday season, The Salvation Army raised more than $126 million nationally through red kettles. But this year, with stores closed, people staying indoors, and those who venture out carrying less cash and coins — all because of COVID-19 — there could be a 50 percent decrease in donations. This decrease would mean limited daily services for the most vulnerable and a reduction in help during disasters. In order to prevent this, The Salvation Army is going digital with its first-ever Virtual Red Kettle. This new donation tool allows the community to support their neighbors in need and help them participate in the traditional red kettle experience — all from the comfort of their homes. HOW DO DONATE Visit virtualredkettle.org and scroll down to the directory of 31 Virtual Red Kettles in Northern California, then click...

    SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS – As she pushed an empty wheelchair up and down San Pedro Avenue on Monday morning, Mary Balenger was not only passing the time but also trying to keep warm. She had nowhere to be and no place to go after what she says was a frigid night outdoors. Freeze Warning issued for San Antonio, Bexar County, and surrounding areas “It’s cold,” she said. “We slept in that parking lot last night and we froze last night. It was cold.” The “we” to whom she referred was herself and her husband. Balenger said rather than risk separation in a shelter, they choose to sleep on the streets. With freezing temperatures in the forecast for Monday night, they could be in for another rough night. “We just bundle up with a bunch of blankets. That’s how we stay warm,” Balenger said, referring to her plans for the night. Even if they were to change their minds about staying in a shelter, though, they could be out of luck. “We’re expected to be at capacity again. We were actually...

    Whether it’s online or in the classroom, a local school supply drive is hoping to help out as kids start classes again this fall. This weekend, empty boxes at eight Walmart locations in Virginia, Maryland and D.C. are waiting to be filled with supplies for those in need in time for the new school year. “A lot of them were already struggling prior to COVID,” said Ken Forsythe, Marketing and communications manager for the Salvation Army National Capital Area Command.
