2015 Soup, Soap and Hope Fundraiser

Helps Kids Get to Summer Camp

IRVING (April 7, 2015)—Fifth generation Salvationist and member of The Salvation Army Irving Advisory Council Carol Boyer spoke on the Foundations of Faith at today’s 6th Annual Soup, Soap and Hope Ladies Luncheon benefitting the Salvation Army of Irving. The event took place at the Las Colinas Country Club from 11:30 to 1:30 p.m.

The League of Volunteers for the Salvation Army in Irving hosts this luncheon, every year, to raise money for summer camp scholarships for the Boys and Girls Club of Irving.

Bonnie Kelley, President and Found of the League of Volunteers said, “We stand our tallest when we reach down to help a child.”

Funds raised will also support the league’s Angel Tree program and the league’s ESL, sewing and personal development classes.

“We serve, support, and assist in the ministry of the Salvation Army,” said Kelley. “We are ambassadors of The Salvation Army in the community.”

Carol Boyer shared her testimony, growing up as the daughter of two officers and in turn working for The Salvation Army as well.

“I learned very early on a servant’s heart is something to be very grateful for,” said Boyer. “Growing up as an officer’s child in The Salvation Army, you go wherever your parents go.”

Boyer further explained faith and service are two key ideals that she holds close to her heart. “Service for others and doing what we believe is doing the most good for others,” Boyer said.

About 250 people attended the luncheon in a ballroom overlooking the golf course. Cans of soup, bars of soap, and monetary donations were collected by the League of Volunteers to benefit The Salvation Army of Irving.
