Providing physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance,
to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions.
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.
Especially during the holiday season, needed assistance with everyday problems can help a family have the hope they need to start the new year. The Salvation Army assists families with temporal needs by providing food, utility, rent, and other assistance. Through our holistic approach to serving the whole person, we supplement every service with emotional and spiritual support.
The Salvation Army in partnership with Toys for Tots provides a Christmas Assistance Program for individuals and families in our community. Eligible families and individuals each receive a plentiful food box and warm clothing. Additionally, families with children age 0-14 receive toys. Sign-ups begin in mid-November; please call 517-782-7185 x160 for more information.
