The Salvation Army Cup of Hope
The Salvation Army will hold its “Cup of Hope” luncheon to coincide with Domestic Violence Awareness month and to benefit the Joy D. Baker Center. The event features full service tea and lunch menu by All Occasion Catering in the remodeled Jackson Terminal, silent auction and a shopping experience. The guest speaker will be Angela Cassel, who spent 25 years of active duty service as an Air Force Chief Master Sergeant, the highest enlisted grade within the Air Force structure. Parking for the event is available in the public parking lots along Jackson Avenue at a charge of $1 per hour.
The Joy D. Baker Center serves as a shelter for women with or without children affected by domestic violence, as well as homeless women with children. The 24-hour staff members also serve as counselors and liaisons for the court and school systems and assist with job placement and referrals to other agencies.
