Christmas At the Salvation army

a season filled with hope and promise!


Christmas at The salvation Army

The Christmas season is a special time of year at The Salvation Army. It's a time where hope is experienced by the outpouring of love from our entire Jackson community! There's a place for everyone at The Salvation Army!

Christmas Assistance Intake Days

Each Christmas, over 2,600 individuals are served by their community through our Annual Christmas Outreach. This year, we anticipate to serve thousands with the warmth of Christmas. Our Christmas program is all-inclusive and offers families the extra support they need by receiving warm clothing, toys for children age 0-14 years old and a plentiful Christmas food box with all of the fixings for a special dinner! 

Do you know someone who could use some extra assistance this Christmas? For anyone in need, please contact The Salvation Army at 806 E. Pearl St. Jackson, MI 49201 or 517-782-7185 to receive more information about our sign- up days in November 2019.

Host a Drive

Does your church, business, school or civic group want to host a holiday drive for your neighbors in need? The Salvation Army relies heavily upon community-driven drives to help us serve over 2,600 people at Christmas. We are in most need of quality meats (frozen turkeys, hams or whole chickens) as well as warm clothing for adults and children (hats, gloves, coats, scarves, etc.) and the fixings to go along with a nice Christmas dinner (stuffing, potatoes, canned food items). 

If you'd like to host a drive or make a personal donation to our Christmas Assistance Program please contact The Salvation Army at 517-782-7185.



We have a host of opportunities for volunteering this Christmas. From ringing bells at our Red Kettle to sorting and assembling Christmas food boxes and giving hope at our extensive Christmas outreach. We've got a volunteer role just for you!
