The Salvation Army of New Jersey Honors Those Lost on 9/11

Liberty State Park, NJ (September 11, 2012) - On this day of remembrance, in Liberty State Park, The Salvation Army was privileged to serve breakfast to the New Jersey State Police and approximately 150 family members of the victims of 9/11. They then traveled by boat to take part in the remembrance ceremony at Ground Zero.

For Stephanie Baker and her mother Cindy South, serving breakfast to the families of the victims on this day has become a solemn tradition. Stephanie and Cindy have volunteered to serve in this way for the last ten years.

“We are honored to be here with The Salvation Army providing this outreach in memory of those who were lost and to support their loved ones left behind,” said Stephanie.
