"He who is kind to the poor lends to the LORD, and he will reward him for what he has done."  Proverbs 19:17

Why donate to The Salvation Army?

  • Your donation has the ability to change lives in our community.  Through a wide variety of programs The Salvation Army provides services and ministries to thousands of individuals each year.  This is only possible through the generosity of donors, like you.
  • The Salvation Army has been serving the Florida Keys since 1954 and we have remained committed to our mission of "preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ and meeting human needs in His name without discrimination."  The late management guru Peter Drucker called The Salvation Army "the most effective organization".  A donor shared that he continues to give to The Salvation Army because he feels we are a trustworthy organization that will "do the most good" with his gift.
  • We know the value of your dollar and are frugal with your donation, putting as much of your money toward the cause as possible and striving to keep our administrative cost low.  The Salvation Army depends on the material donations and thousands of volunteer hours given each year.
  • Your donation impacts local needs.
  • Your gift is tax deductible.
