Salvation Army concert marks 120 years

Much has changed in the Sheboygan area over the last 120 years. But, one thing has not: The Salvation Army’s presence in the community and its commitment to serve the hurting, the hungry and the homeless.

The organization arrived in Sheboygan in 1886 and has remained steadfast in its mission to “meet human needs in His name without discrimination” ever since.

“I am grateful to the people of Sheboygan for supporting The Salvation Army for more than a century. We are so fortunate to live in a community where neighbors care for one another and are willing to share their blessings with those in need,” said Lt. Daryl Mangeri, Sheboygan Corps Officer and Pastor.

In 2015, The Salvation Army provided more than 11,000 nights of shelter for homeless individuals and families through its Emergency Lodge while its Food Pantry supplied more than 10,600 bags of food for the hungry.

The Salvation Army also offers a helping hand through its Red Shield Clinic, utility assistance, Child Care Center, Coats for Kids initiative, youth programming, and Christmas assistance for families, among other critical services.

This year marks 120 years of The Salvation Army “Doing the Most Good” in the area. The Sheboygan Corps invites the community to join in celebrating this important milestone with a free concert this weekend.

The Weill Center will host the world-renowned Chicago Staff Band and the locally-grown Sheboygan Pops Band on Saturday, March 19th. The concert will also feature The Salvation Army’s Wisconsin and Upper Michigan Divisional Band and members of its Youth Performing Arts program.

The concert will begin at 6:30 p.m., with a prelude to entertain attendees beginning at 6:15 p.m.

“Thanks to the community’s amazing generosity, we are able to serve thousands of men, women and children in need each year. It is the people of Sheboygan, and the gifts of their time, treasure and talents, that have made it possible to provide 120 years of service,” explained The Salvation Army’s Development Director, Abby E. Block.

“We hope the community will join us as we celebrate this important milestone with an evening of beautiful music.”
