The hot dogs are FREE to everyone who comes. This is to say "thank you!" to those who have been a part of the ministry of The Salvation Army in Washington County.
National Salvation Army Week, first named in 1954 by Dwight D.

On average, there are 8,000 people "Doing the Most Good" every day across the United States!
You can celebrate, too, by "Doing the Most Good" in your community. Take the challenge: volunteer, hand out goodies, open the door for someone, smile at a stranger, buy the meal for the person at the table next to you, etc.; the possibilities are endless for you to "Do the Most Good."
