People are exposed to poverty more than ever before and The Salvation Army and Visit Syracuse are hoping to combat it. Carol Eaton from Visit Syracuse and Jon Rogers from the Salvation Army joined Sistina and TeNesha to talk about the Snow Angel Challenge. With one in five children in the United States living in poverty, this challenge aims to stop the “snowball effect” that can lead to poverty for far too many.
Visit Syracuse approached The Salvation Army about partnering up and motivating people to give back during this frigid winter season. Syracuse has been declared the “Official Home of Winter” and Visit Syracuse wants to embrace the snow and this title the Salt City has been given. Eaton is asking the community to have some fun and make a snow angel and post it on social media.
Rogers says that about 38,000 people come to The Salvation Army during the winter season due to the cold. He also talked about those who may have simply fallen on ice and got injured which resulted in them being out of work. The Salvation Army hopes to bring help and comfort to the community during this freezing cold time of year.
