Need Knows No Season - Join The Salvation Army Traverse City Christmas In July campaign

Jun 23, 2022

Celebrate Christmas in July with
The Salvation Army Traverse City

THANK YOU! The gifts of time and treasures that were shared at Red Kettles during our public Red Kettle campaign and Bell Ringing July 22 & 23 are priceless to the families and individuals we have the privilege to serve.

Thank you to everyone who gave generously to embrace and show their love to our neighbors in need! 

The celebration of miracles, hope, family, and community happens every day in our community, not just during the Christmas season. We have seen it clearly throughout the past year – neighbors opening their hearts, embracing and uplifting those who are struggling to care for themselves and their families through their support.

Need Knows No Season! The Salvation Army knows times are tough for many people in our community right now. Inflation has raised the cost of basic necessities beyond what many can afford, and gas prices are stretching the limits of maintaining everyday needs.

Since the beginning of 2022, we have seen financial assistance requests rise 105% compared to last year. The Christmas in July Red Kettle Campaign provides critical funds to allow The Salvation Army Traverse City to feed hungry hearts and souls, assist with utilities, help individuals and families stay in their homes, provide area children and youth the opportunity to attend camp and explore God’s creation, help families break the cycle of poverty one step at a time through the Pathway of Hope program and meet critical and emergency needs of our neighbors during their time of need.
