It’s midweek during the celebration of National Salvation Army Week and at our Eagle Creek Corps there’s no shortage of creativity to commemorate the day. On Wednesday, kids and seniors took advantage of the opportunity to memorialize their time with the Army on a hand-painted tile to be added to a wall in the Center at a later date.

Color Me Mine, a paint-your-own ceramics studio in Carmel brought the studio experience to the Eagle Creek Corps, complete with paint and tiles. They will take the completed tiles and fire them in their kiln for longevity. Color Me Mine owner Noel shared with Captain Amos Shiels, Salvation Army, that he actually grew up in the neighborhood being served by the corps and even coached basketball in their gym.

The Open House at the Eagle Creek Corps was just one of several being held during the week to bring greater awareness of how The Salvation Army is serving in each community and what services are available for those who might benefit from them.

The Salvation Army Eagle Creek Corps will offer summer activities for kids who are currently in grades K-12. For more information or to volunteer, call 317-299-4454.
