Danell was nervous the first time he visited The Salvation Army of Cleveland County. He had recently experienced a stroke which left him out of a job. He had lost his place in the world and needed help, “This was the first time I have asked or needed help so I felt a little nervous at first. I had worked all my life and now found myself needing help”. The Salvation Army of Cleveland County provided Danell emergency shelter, “It was a life changer. Without the shelter I would be out on the streets. It made all the difference in the world to me”.
He worked with The Salvation Army of Cleveland County to get him back on his feet again. They assisted Danell by locating permanent housing. “I felt great when I knew that I would have a place to call home. I was nervous about what the future would hold for me but am so thankful for those who helped me every step of the way”.
Danell cannot stop praising the team at The Salvation Army of Cleveland County for going the distance for him, “They provided an opportunity for me to stay in the shelter…they gave me a chance. The Salvation Army is a great organization and I have seen firsthand how much they truly want to help people.”
He indeed has seen firsthand the need in the community, being on the receiving side for a short timeframe, and shared how important it is for individuals to support The Salvation Army. “The money really goes to people who need it on a daily basis. I rang the bell at Christmas time and enjoyed that experience very much. People are so generous. I would encourage people to give what you can.”
