Smiles Make the Greatest Gifts

Providing physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance,
to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions.

The Salvation Army's mission shines brightest at Christmas.

The Salvation Army celebrates the birth of Christ by spreading His hope, love and joy to less fortunate members of our community. In fact, our gift-giving programs and fundraising initiatives are a direct answer to God's calling to care for the poor, hungry, sick, and displaced. From physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance, to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions, to spiritual guidance that provides healing and hope, we work to assist the whole person through gifts that serve the body, mind and soul.

2019 Angel Tree Program

Through programs like Angel Tree, Adopt-a-Family, family gift baskets, and others, The Salvation Army works to make sure that children in every family circumstance have a reason for joy on Christmas morning and hope through each new year.

Our 2019 Angel Tree Toy Drive has kicked off! Businesses and organizations are invited to sign up to host an Angel Tree site and collect toys to help us brighten the holidays for families in need.
