COVID-19 / Coronavirus Response
In these times of uncertainty, we stand strong, providing hope and help to those who need it. From emergency assistance to free food and home goods pantries, to providing shelter and meals, to lending an ear through our emotional and spiritual support hotline, to supporting local government and first responders, we remain here to serve. We continue to protect our volunteers, donors, clients, staff and other supporters by following CDC and local government requirements. Learn more about our "new normal".
Iconic red kettles usually signal the start of the holiday season. Donations collected in these buckets support the services in your neighborhood. Bell ringers are both seasonal employees and volunteers. Learn more about Bell Ringing or Register to Ring now. And while Kettle Pay means contactless giving is available, the pandemic means there are fewer red kettles and fewer shoppers out and about. Now until January 31, you can help online by becoming a fundraiser or donating through our Virtual Red Kettle.
When a family is struggling financially, holiday gifts are often not feasible. Our Angel Tree program allows generous friends like you to purchase gifts and necessities for neighbors in need, making their holidays brighter. You can shop online or in-person. Be an angel for a family in need this Christmas.
Holiday Meals & Food Pantries
We provide holiday meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. Holiday and pantry boxes may include shelf-stable pantry items, breads, cereals, meat and other household necessities.Several community centers will have to-go holiday meals this year to provide Christmas spirit in a safe manner.

The Salvation Army provides emergency assistance to help with mortgage/rent, utility bills, clothing, medication bills, and other needs in order to keep families in their homes. For more information or support, find a location near you, or learn more online.

A comprehensive case management system to help families identify barriers to self-sufficiency (unemployment, insecure housing, lack of job skills, lack of childcare, etc), Pathway of Hope also provides guidance on how to address these barriers, and connects families with community support organizations, and more.
