The Salvation Army’s doors are open during these uncertain times because the vulnerable people in our community need us — and you — to get them through. Many of you have stocked up on essentials like food, water and household items but the people we serve everyday simply can’t do that.

The demand for our services is growing…. As schools close, hospitals get busier and more events get canceled, the people and families we support every day are at even greater risk. The jobs they rely on are being shut down, and they’re reaching out to us to provide basic services like food, transportation to facilities, and shelter. Because our doors and hearts are open, we are serving and loving these people. In these uncertain times we have to be creative, whether it’s organizing drive-through food pantries or managing other food service to ensure social distancing.

These are unique and challenging days. We urgently need your help. A donation now, of any amount, will help those struggling to deal with the effects of COVID-19 in your local community. Please give generously and help our neighbors.

Open Doors. Open Hearts.


Assess the Need

FIRST, we assess the needs of each community in which we serve. We work to understand the obstacles, hardships, and challenges native to the area’s particular population.

Build the Programs

NEXT, we build local programs designed to offer immediate relief, short-term care, and long-term growth in the areas that will best benefit the community.

Invest in the Community

THEN, we offer the local programs to the local community, working to continually optimize their efficacy via spiritual, physical, and emotional service.
