There is now another way to give to The Salvation Army.

How it works:

  2. Whenever you fly United Airlines or on a Star Alliance carrier, be sure to show them your United mileage card or inform them that you are a member and they will credit your miles to your account.
  3. To make a minimum donation of 1,000 miles to The Salvation Army, call United at 800.421.4655 and request that your Mileage Plus miles be transferred into The Salvation Army's account.

Family Store 

Your purchase helps others!

The Salvation Army Family Store represents the heart of our ministry: simply put, to help others in time of need.

Our Family Store helps us accomplish this by providing quality clothing, furniture and other goods to the Tyler community at bargain prices. The proceeds generated from those sales go to support the Social Services programs of The Salvation Army.

In the larger cities, such as Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston, the funds generated support our Adult Rehabilitation Centers, a residential alcohol and drug treatment program for men. In the mid and small size communities,such as Tyler, the funds support daily operations and programs such as emergency rent, food, and prescription assistance.

In addition to providing goods at bargain prices, we are often able to provide a Family Store voucher for those in great need through our Social Services program. These vouchers allow a person to receive clothing, furniture and/or house wares from the Family Store at no cost. For more information on vouchers contact Social Services at 903-592-4361.

Help make lives better by donating your gently used items or by shopping at a Salvation Army Family Store near you.
