When you're struggling financially to care for your family, holiday gifts are often not feasible. The Salvation Army Angel Tree program allows donors to purchase gifts and clothes for families in need, making their holidays brighter. Be an angel for a family in need this Christmas.
The Salvation Army partners with the Chicago Bears and Jewel-Osco to collect new or gently used winter coats for families. Each year, we collect more than 30,000 coats.
The Salvation Army provides holiday meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. Each box feeds a family of six, and includes meat, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, biscuits, cake mix and more. Several community centers also host holiday meals at their locations. You can brighten the holidays with the Holiday Dinner Box Project.
