When disaster strikes, The Salvation Army is often among the first on the scene.

After the Unspeakable, We Speak Hope.

Disasters come in both natural and man-made forms. Each year, The Salvation Army serves 1—2 million Americans in dozens of disaster response efforts nationwide. And when disaster strikes, The Salvation Army is often among the first on the scene. Our trained personnel are always available to meet emergencies by providing food, shelter, clothing and spiritual comfort. In disaster relief operation, The Salvation Army's first aim is to meet the basic needs of those affected – both survivors and first responders.

With the support of The Salvation Army World Service Office, local Salvation Army resources are leading relief and recovery efforts in the region. Your generous donation will help those in the affected areas rebuild their lives.

There are several ways you can make a financial donation:

Donations of Household Goods, Clothing & Disaster items:

Due to emergency conditions, The Salvation Army cannot guarantee that gifts of household goods or clothing donated now will be sent to disaster areas. In times of disaster, we first try to meet household needs from existing, pre-sorted stock. Please, continue to donate gently-used household goods to your local Salvation Army—you help your community today and may help with disaster relief needs tomorrow. To find your nearest drop-off location, please go to www.satruck.org.
