When people become displaced through the circumstances of life like a fire, personal transition, or homelessness there is nothing greater than assisting someone or their family from getting back on their feet again. Which is why the Salvation Army of Bell County Corps in Temple, Texas is such an important non profit to support as they have a goal of "Doing the most good."

Believe it or not, one of the biggest ways to help somebody get on their feet again is actually by providing them somewhere to lie down. Last year the Bell County Salvation Army Corps held their very first new air mattress drive, and were able to collect 50 air mattresses still in their box to distribute to those in need in Central Texas.
