Annual ICMC Holiday Donation Drive to Benefit the Salvation Army of the USVI
January 19, 2018

Each year, ICMC stakeholders take the time to offer their assistance to those most in need by donating items to various non-profit organizations across the Territory.

This year, The Salvation Army of St. Thomas was happy to be the proud recipient of hundreds of donated clothing items, toiletries and non-perishable goods. “It’s an effort that we coordinate each and every year,” says ICMC Community Relations Director, Karen Nelson-Hughes. “Each year we select a different recipient organization to donate our items to and one that is actively serving the community and those most in need.”

With a number of stakeholders having worked with the organization serving hundreds of Thanksgiving meals to the community this past Thanksgiving, the Salvation Army of St. Thomas’ work was close at heart.

Since 1917, The Salvation Army has been providing social and spiritual services to communities throughout the Virgin Islands. People given purpose, hearts given hope and souls finding redemption—this has been their mission for more than a century. Whether it is shelter for a displaced family or a warm cup of coffee for our bravest and finest—hope and healing is the message of The Salvation Army.

Today, through over 3,500 service centers in the eastern region of the United States, The Army's spiritual and social services assist millions of homeless, working poor, children, youth, addicted, elderly, and abused families and individuals.
