The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary
The Salvation Army Women's Auxiliary of Birmingham, Alabama, has over 500 members and is one of the largest in the country. From the early 70's until the early 90's, it was the largest in the country. Our purpose is to assist The Salvation Army with all of its programs by raising money and volunteering with service groups. Formed in 1962, we provide year-round support to The Salvation Army's 21 local programs in Jefferson, Shelby, and Saint Clair counties. Although Christmas is the most intensive effort, members also focus heavily on helping every day with those less fortunate, including children, abused women, seniors, addicts, veterans, and the homeless. We envision a future with many opportunities to serve others. Each year brings new ways to assist The Army in being a part of a worldwide movement that seeks the spiritual redemption and social rehabilitation of those it serves. The current president is Nancy Warden. A/Captain Kathy Parker, The Salvation Army's Coordinator of Women's Ministries and Associate Area Commander for Birmingham, oversees the year-round community projects and fund raisers put on by Women's Auxiliary members.
