'Tokens of Hope' help expand Salvation Army's mission

LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Lubbock Salvation Army will soon push a new way to guide people to its services. This includes the usual food, clothing, shelter as well as mental health resources and counseling. It starts with a simple wooden token a way to get you involved in caring for our neighbors.

This wooden coin initiative is called 'Tokens of Hope'. The Salvation Army will use them as a way to spread the word and serve more clients in our area.

"The token really is a representation of an organization that want's to assist you during your time of need whether that is food, clothing, housing, for the short term the long-term that's what we want the token to represent," said Major David Worthy. "Tokens of hope takes a more intentional case management approach to move people from a transitional position into a more permanent position and to get them rapidly rehoused."

The wooden token initiative is not limited to just homeless individuals, but for anyone who might be facing tough times and wants a hand up. Any individual with a wooden token can stop by the Salvation Army and receive a meal, shelter, clothing, hygiene items among other services.

Anyone can pick up 'Tokens of Hope' at the Salvation Army headquarters, anyone can give them out whether individually or at business or support services. The program's set to officially begin October first.
