Goshen Salvation Army gears up for its 49th annual Pancake Day



Input needed

The Salvation Army, Goshen, is conducting an online community needs assessment and public is needed

Maj. Karen Hanton said the assessment is to help local Salvation Army staff make informed decisions about being a service provider. The goal is to get reliable data on what services the community feels The Salvation Army needs to supply and where it is lacking. So, Hanton would like the public to be brutally honest.

“We want all opinions, even if they are not favorable,” Hanton said. “That’s great.”

The assessment takes about five to seven minutes. The Salvation Army would like to see responses from Goshen and the eight southern townships, but anyone in Elkhart County can take the assessment.

The web address is www.salvationarmysurvey.com. It’s important to remember that once at that site, the participant choose the Goshen, IN survey and then follow the prompts from there.

The assessment can be taken through November. Results will be released in January and will be available to anyone, Hanton said.
