Christmas is challenging for many people in need and a busy time for The Salvation Army. Your generosity can help us extend our reach to the growing number of people who come to us for assistance. Together, we can change the outcome of someone’s Christmas season.

Here are some ways you can help:

  1. Volunteer at a Salvation Army Christmas kettle, hamper program or Christmas meal.
  2. Participate in the Santa Shuffle, a 5K fun run aimed to raise funds for Salvation Army programs and services.
  3. Knit socks or mitts, which will add a personal touch to any Christmas hamper.
  4. Donate a new toy to your local Salvation Army.
  5. Buy extra groceries for the local food bank.
  6. Toss your spare change into a Salvation Army red kettle.
  7. Contact your local Salvation Army about how you can sponsor a family or Christmas hamper.

Whether you buy gifts, volunteer your time, or donate money this holiday season, your generosity will help build stronger communities and make a positive difference in people’s lives.
