The Moody Foundation Continues Support of The Salvation Army
(Texas City, TX- July 2020) The Moody Foundation donated $50,000 to The Salvation Army in support of the newest program in Texas City, a Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club. “We are so thankful that the Moody Foundation is willing to provide for this great need. They have been very generous by helping with extra expenses related to Covid-19. While the pandemic continues, we are still looking to the future and working toward opening this vital program for children in our community,” said Major Nathanael Doria, Commanding Officer of The Salvation Army. “This gift will help with starting expenses as well as with the purchase of one of the two vans needed for our Boys & Girls Club program.”
The Moody Foundation originally provided $1.5 million to the capital campaign to reopen the Texas City Corps. The new facility will offer social services to the community as well as a Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club for afterschool and summer programming primarily for children ages 6 through 12. The new Moody Family Center for Worship and Service at 4801 Emmett F. Lowry Expressway in Texas City will open to the public in August.
The Salvation Army relies solely on the community it serves to support the needs of the area. To help, you can make a donation online or check out volunteer opportunities at www.salvationarmygalvestoncounty.org.
