Lent is the six-week period leading up to Easter. Lent is more frequently seen as a time of solemn observance and preparation for the celebration of the death and resurrection of Jesus at Easter. From its start on Ash Wednesday until its conclusion on Easter Sunday, Lent has been a traditional time for fasting or giving something up or abstinence. Just as we carefully prepare for events in our personal lives, as a wedding, or birthday; a commencement Lent invites us to make our minds and hearts ready for remembering Jesus’ life, death and body resurrection.**
The Salvation Army encourages you to fellowship with friends and family, unplug from your cell phones, volunteer, get to know your neighbors, a random act of kindness…there are many ways you to do good this Lent season! Here are a few:
Donate Food Items
Clean out your pantry, stop by the grocery store or organize a food drive in your neighborhood or at your church. Then donate the nonperishable food items to a Salvation Army food pantry. Many individuals and families are forced to make tough financial choices every month in order to put food on the table. The Salvation Army strives to ease this burden by providing food pantries and meal programs. Find your local Salvation Army.
