“I’m really grateful for the food that they give us.” – Annie

In the heart of Escondido, the spirit of giving back to those in need is alive and well. Ann “Annie” Fleming is a regular at The Salvation Army’s Escondido Corps and enjoys turkey dinner on Thanksgiving.

For Annie, the annual Thanksgiving is more than just a meal; it’s a testament to the strength of community bonds. “I’m just really grateful for this day and that I live in this country,” she proudly shares.

More than holiday help

Annie’s connection with The Salvation Army goes way beyond the holiday season. Each week, she finds comfort in the support provided by The Salvation Army’s food pantry. “I’m grateful for the food they give us here. And I also really like the people in line,” Annie says.

Her story is a reminder that the impact of giving back extends far beyond a single moment or kind gesture. The dedicated efforts of organizations like The Salvation Army create a ripple effect, touching the lives of real people like Annie living in our community. This is thanks to support from neighbors like you.
