About The Salvation Army in Salem
The Salvation Army in Marion and Polk counties is a non-profit organization whose mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. We believe in meeting the needs of the whole person; including the physical, emotional, and spiritual. In 2011, The Salvation Army in Marion/Polk County served 72,999 meals, provided 27,586 nights of housing, and assisted 36,923 individuals total.
The Salvation Army in Salem runs a homeless shelter, gives out food boxes and clothing, helps with energy assistance, and much more! I have been lucky enough to volunteer with the Salvation Army Social Services, and I have seen the good work they do. Of course, I might be biased since I grew up in the Salvation Army, but I have seen lives changed and turned around because of donations from generous people and the hard work of their employees and volunteers.
As the winter comes in, the Salvation Army will be offering Christmas boxes and energy assistance. Their red kettles will be all over the country, collecting money that will fund Salvation Army causes for the rest of the year. Please consider buying some books from me or donating to or volunteering for the Salvation Army near you.

Where to Buy the Books
You have a ton of choices!
Please Spread the Word!
If you can’t buy today, then please spread the word! Tweet, share on Facebook, e-mail people you think may be interested. Let’s raise some money for the good work the Salvation Army is doing! You can also consider volunteering for the Salvation Army or donating to another shelter in Salem (Grace House, YWCA, Union Gospel Mission, HOAP Day Center, HOST Youth and Family Program)
Gaslight and Love, Me are two anthologies I have short stories in. I don’t see the profits from sales from these anthologies (but Love, Me donates all of their proceeds to CASA).
I’m not donating 50% of the list price (e.g. $2.99 for Finding Fiona) — I am donating 50% of my profits. For 99 cent titles, I will donate 100% since I only make 30-60 cents from them. For books that are priced $2.99 and up, I generally receive 60-70 percent of the list price, and I will donate 50% of that.
I will do this again in December, but I will be donating to the Mukhtar Mai Women’s Organisation in Pakistan.
Thank you so much for reading!
