The Salvation Army helps keep families together


Love has an army. We fight for good.

Throughout Linn County, The Salvation Army opens our arms and our hearts to serve those most desperate for physical, emotional, and spiritual assistance. Since human need differs from city to city, and even person to person, we seek to find solutions to each unique situation. By providing everything from feeding programs and emergency financial assistance to disaster relief services, we are able to do the most good wherever and whenever it's needed.

Thank you for treating us like we're someone special

"The meals I eat at The Salvation Army every day for breakfast and lunch are so good. I often look at my meal and feel like The Salvation Army made a meal for someone rich and famous and I got this meal by mistake. Thank you for treating us like we're someone special, the meals you give to us make me feel like someone cares enough to provide me a meal they'd give someone important" - Sarah, a feeding program guest

How we help equip families

Emergency Financial Assistance: Through our social ministries staff we offer payments toward rent and utilities for households at risk of eviction or having their utilities turned off.

Meals With Love Feeding Program: The Salvation Army serves 180 hot meals a day through our Meals With Love feeding program.  Anyone in the community is welcome to come for breakfast (8am - 9am) or lunch (12noon - 1pm) for food and fellowship.

Thanksgiving Meal: We invite our neighbors to join us for a sit-down Thanksgiving meal every year to celebrate together.

Christmas Meal: We invite our neighbors to join us for a sit-down Christmas meal every year to celebrate community and Christ's birth.

Easter Meal: We invite our neighbors to join us for a sit-down Easter meal every year to celebrate together Christ's resurrection.

Christmas Assistance:  The Salvation Army, in partnership with the Linn Country Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, provides toys to Linn County families and Christmas food baskets to both families and seniors.

Back to School Supplies:  We work with families in our programs to help them provide school clothes and supplies for their children.  Through the provision of gift cards, families are able to shop on their own without having to tell their children they couldn't afford these items.

Fan Distribution:  The Salvation Army accepts donations of fans and gives them out during the summer to help low-income households remain cool.
