Our conversation for United Way Day with Elise from United Way of Northern Shenandoah Valley featured her guest, Lt. Jared Martin from Winchester Salvation Army who told us about their shelter for men/women/children and all the great works they do not just in our community but internationally.

Lt. Martin talked about the thrift store, bell ringing and the need for volunteers. He explained what it’s like to ring the bell each holiday season and told us about some of the recent successes they’ve seen with their clients.
