The Salvation Army is all about Christmas and the holiday sesaon. That's why we're celebrating with our guests of the Single Women's Shelter (SWS), with those who wouldn't normally have a chance to celebrate this magical time of year. The SWS hosts 45 women each night and it is our goal to provide each woman with a special holiday gift to call their own. Each gift should contain about $25-$30 worth of items, suggestions below. OR you may purchase 45 of one item (e.g. 45 nail hygiene kits) and we will add one to each gift package. If you'd like to put together a gift for a guest at SWS, please drop-off unwrapped gifts by Wednesday, December 5th to our Darbo Drive location.

Gift Drop-Off

On or before Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 at 3030 Darbo Drive in Madison. Please be sure the gifts are unwrapped.
