This Year, the Need is Greater...

You can give hope when you help The Salvation Army Rescue Christmas for those in need!

Give Your Support Learn More

The Heartland Division's local communities have felt the affects of COVID-19 and are experiencing an unprecedented, increased need. The Salvation Army has responded in a variety of ways, and we will continue to do so in order to serve the evolving needs of the most vulnerable. As we look now to the holiday season, we know the need will only continue to grow.

That is why we are challenging our local neighbors, coworkers, family & friends to join us in our mission to Rescue Christmas!

A Special message from the Divisional Commander, Major Kelly Collins:

 

What Does your Support Create?

Every year The Salvation Army is able to assist local people in need throughout the Holiday Season by providing a wide range of both broad & specific assistance services/programs. By giving your support through volunteering, fundraising, donating or sharing the word about our mission - those in need around your community can continue to have access to these life changing services & programs.

Some of the most common within the Heartland Division communities include:

Emergency Assistance

The Holiday Season can bring added financial pressure to families and individuals throughout our local communities. The Salvation Army recognizes this need and offers emergency assistance with bills such as utilities or rent. We are proud to make our mission proactive in serving those in need by preventing homelessness or poverty through these short-term assistance services. Contact your local Salvation Army if you are in need today.

Angel Tree

When you're struggling financially to care for your family, holiday gifts are often not feasible. The Salvation Army Angel Tree program connects donors to local families in need by allowing them to purchase gifts, clothes and other items that can truly change lives during the Holiday Season. Contact your local Salvation Army today to find out how you can join the Angel Tree program and adopt a family in need this Christmas.

Coat & Clothing Drives

The Salvation Army provides children, families and individuals with warm clothing, often with the help of other local agencies or partners. This service provides protection for those who may not be prepared for harsh weather conditions, as well as a reminder of Hope to those who are unable to purchase clothing for themselves or others. A warm hug is one of the strongest healing gestures and The Salvation Army brings this feeling throughout the Holiday Season by meeting everyone in need of clothing support.

Holiday Meals

The Salvation Army provides holiday meals for families and individuals unable to create a special meal themselves. These meals come in the form of Food Boxes or free community lunches/dinners. We know that hunger affects more than just the body, that is why we serve the soul of those in need too. A warm nutritious meal can be taken for granted by most throughout the Holidays but The Salvation Army works hard to ensure all who are hungry, are met by our mission in one way or another.


Ways to Give Your Support:

However you give to Your Salvation Army, the support our mission receives stays local in every community we serve. Your Holiday Support is especially crucial as it often funds our work to meet the greatest need all year long. When you join in this year's efforts to Rescue Christmas, you are enlisting in Love's Army & creating a lasting impact that will be felt by parents, children, neighbors, friends and all who are in need around you.
