Host a Drive

Does your church, business, school or civic group want to host a holiday drive for your neighbors in need? The Salvation Army relies heavily upon community-driven drives to help us serve over 2,600 people at Christmas. We are in most need of quality meats (frozen turkeys, hams or whole chickens) as well as warm clothing for adults and children (hats, gloves, coats, scarves, etc.) and the fixings to go along with a nice Christmas dinner (stuffing, potatoes, canned food items). 

If you'd like to host a drive or make a personal donation to our Christmas Assistance Program please contact The Salvation Army at 517-782-7185.



We have a host of opportunities for volunteering this Christmas. From ringing bells at our Red Kettle to sorting and assembling Christmas food boxes and giving hope at our extensive Christmas outreach. We've got a volunteer role just for you! Click below to see a full listing of volunteer needs at The Salvation Army this Christmas season. 

For more information about volunteering please contact Heather Rodgers at heather.rodgers@usc.salvationarmy.org or 517-782-7185 x 117.
