Help us do the most good

Our programs are made possible because of generous donors that give back to their communities in a variety of ways.

When you support your local Salvation Army, you help your neighbors in need and strengthen your community.
Thank you for helping us Do the Most Good. 

Christmas Giving

There are many ways to support our community through The Salvation Army during the holidays. Our iconic Red Kettles can be found at over 20 sites across Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton Counties. All of the funds raised through our Red Kettle Campaign help support programs and services throughout the year. 

If you're doing more online shopping this year than in-person, you can donate to our virtual red kettle! You can even set up your own Red Kettle page and encourage friends, family, and coworkers to join you in making a difference this year!

There are so many ways you can make a difference in our community this Christmas. Donations can also be mailed or dropped off to The Salvation Army Citadel Corps at 525 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Lansing, MI, 48912. Every dollar raised brings joy to our neighbors.

Donate Money

Your donations to The Salvation Army help us serve the most vulnerable members of your community. Each year, The Salvation Army Lansing Capital Area serves tens of thousands of children, families, and individuals in our community when they are facing a crisis. When you donate to The Salvation Army, you can rest assured that $0.87 of every dollar donated goes directly to helping neighbors in our community.
