You never forget the compassion & kindness of strangers towards you – especially when you have absolutely nothing to offer back. The Salvation Army was first to welcome us Armenian, Russian and Bosnian refugees when we arrived to Twin Falls. Without making us feel like charity, TSA picked up where CSI Refugee Program left us – helping us cope with loneliness, with cultural adjustment, form new friendships, financial advising, after school homework, exposing us children to music, theater and the arts. I am forever grateful. Made a promise to God back then, that one day, I would give back to the organization that took care of my family. That day has come. Proud to be officially enrolled by Lt.Cook to serve on The Salvation Army Advisory Board! My turn to give back.
