    Donate Goods

    Our needs vary among the respective programs. With that in mind, we know writing a check may not always be the best option, but picking up an extra set of towels, a few school supplies or donating that suit you’ll never wear again, is doable. SEE MORE HERE to learn about ways you can donate new and used goods.

    Ring a Bell

    The Salvation Army’s most recognizable public effort is the annual Red Kettle drive. To millions it’s the very essence of charitable giving.

    During November and December, men, women and children ring bells throughout Central Virginia. Generous individuals place monetary donations in the kettles to support our year-round programs here in Central Virginia. SEE MORE HERE to sign-up for information about becoming a bell ringer.
