CHARITY    The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal
           Christian church established in 1865, has been supporting those
           in need in His name without discrimination for 126 years in the
           United States.  Over 31 million Americans receive assistance
           from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of
           social services that range from providing food for the hungry,
           relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled,
           outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the
           homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children.  About
           83 cents of every dollar raised is used to support those
           services in 5,000 communities nationwide.  For more information,
