Spring Transformation for Bentonville Shelter

May 24, 2018

It is a beautiful thing to see life change in action. We see this often as we meet with people who have lost hope. Individuals who have had a rough turn of events or who have hit the end of the road because of addiction. People continue to seek out The Salvation Army as a place to find hope and help.  A recent transformation to our garden and landscaping at our Bentonville shelter in many ways represents the change that is happening for guests at our shelters.

This spring several volunteer groups helped us transform our indoor and outdoor spaces. Volunteer teams from throughout the community took our overgrown garden and brought it back to life, groups helped repair our men’s bathroom, de-weeded the entry and provide fresh mulch for the entire front portion of the shelter. These changes are an encouragement to us at The Salvation Army but even more so to the guests who walk through our doors. Below are some before and after photos that capture the improvements.

Thank you to teams from Walmart, the United Way, Neighborhood Church, and some key volunteers like Julie Carr, Tom Richards and Ken Mangold. This wouldn’t have been possible without you!
Thank you for your generosity, time and skill!
