The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary has released their 2011 holiday card. This year’s 5×7 full color card was designed by local artist Melinda Roeleveld and features The Salvation Army bell ringers in downtown St. Louis across from the Peabody Opera House.

Sending this card to family and friends not only shows your support for the organization, which has been “Doing the Most Good” in St. Louis since 1881, but it also directly benefits the Salvation Army, an international organization that provides social services, youth programming and homeless assistance throughout Missouri and Southern Illinois.

Christmas cards may be picked up at The Salvation Army, 1130 Hampton Avenue, or mailed to your residence for an additional fee. Prices start at $10 for 10 cards, with bulk purchase rates available. For more information, contact Kathy Poston at (314) 646-3039.

The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary is made up of prominent women who develop public understanding of Salvation Army programs, provide hands-on assistance for projects such as Tree of Lights, and raise funds through diverse events.   These fundraisers and events include anything from fashion shows and luncheons to arts and crafts sales and Christmas cards.

The Salvation Army is an international organization that has been doing the most good in the St. Louis region for 129 years. The Salvation Army serves community members 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year through emergency disaster services and dozens of different programs that are designed to help people attain, or regain, self-sufficiency.
