I realize I'm a few months late to the party with this, but I'm wondering why the Sabres have chosen to have any affiliation whatsoever with the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army is a discriminatory organization that has not only REFUSED aide to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered individuals, but has also refused to give domestic partnership benefits to their Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered employees.
The Salvation Army even went so far as to threaten to shut down their NYC soup kitchens if anti-discrimination legislation forced them to stop turning away Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered individuals. The Salvation army would rather HELP NO ONE than help Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgendered individuals.
And this is the type of organization that the Sabres have lumped themselves in with. There are plenty of organizations that help the needy without discriminating, like Goodwill and The Rescue Mission. I would urge the Sabres to end it's affiliation with the Salvation Army and pursue partnerships that benefit ALL human beings.
