“Finally, all of you,
be like-minded, be sympathetic,
love one another,
be compassionate and humble.”
1 Peter 3:8
In the battle against racism and inequality, Love’s Army has always marched at the side of those who peacefully, passionately, and compassionately fight to ensure that underserved Americans are cared for, lifted up, and given the opportunity to thrive. This year, our Pathway of Hope program continued to help families break generational cycles of poverty by overcoming root causes like unemployment, unstable housing, and lack of education. In diverse communities across the country, our youth programs provided after-school care, sports, academic support, fine arts, and other opportunities that those children might not otherwise have. In the midst of COVID-19, partners like the Toyota USA Foundation generously provided grants to help us distribute food in minority communities. And in every corps across the country, we continued to listen to the needs and desires of our brothers and sisters, acting boldly and lovingly to do the most good for all.
