The Salvation Army is a worldwide organization committed to serving people, changing one life at a time. Our diverse ministries attract a wide variety of participants and supporters, from single parents needing help to dedicated volunteers seeking meaningful outlets for service to philanthropists and charitable foundations wanting to contribute to their community.
The Salvation Army works every day to make life better for countless people in your community. Your gift can enable us to serve nutritious meals to older adults, shelter homeless families, help men overcome addictions, provide after-school tutoring and recreation, and send inner-city children to summer camp. If your concern is global, you can contribute to Salvation Army World Services which provides such programs as HIV/AIDS clinics in Africa, homeless feeding services in Russia, micro-enterprise development in the Philippines, and homes for orphaned and abandoned children in Mexico.
A tradition since 1891, the familiar red kettle at Christmas not only collects funds for seasonal assistance to individuals and families in need, but also enables The Salvation Army to operate year-round. As the kettles become more scarce, here are other ways you can partner with The Salvation Army to bring opportunity to those in need.
