The Need Has Always Been There.
This Year, It Happens To Be Greater.

This year, millions of Americans have been impacted by COVID-19 and are experiencing unprecedented need. The Salvation Army has responded and will continue to respond, in order to serve the evolving needs of the most vulnerable. As we look ahead to the holiday season, we know the need will only continue to grow, as will the need for financial support.

The holidays bring added financial and emotional stress to families and individuals. From gifts for children in need to special meals for those who would otherwise go without fellowship on the holidays and meeting other basic needs - we aim to Rescue Christmas this holiday season.

The Salvation Army's mission shines brightest at Christmas.

The Salvation Army celebrates the birth of Christ by spreading His hope, love and joy to those who are hurting during the holidays and throughout the year. In fact, our services are a direct answer to God's calling to care for the poor, hungry, sick, and displaced.

In the Community

The Salvation Army helps make
spirits brighter at Christmas through:

Adopt-a-Family program

Adopt a family in need and help them have a better Christmas celebration.

Red Kettles

These iconic red kettles 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.

Angel Tree

When you're struggling financially to care for your family, holiday gifts are often not feasible. Toy donations are needed for The Salvation Army Angel Tree program which allows donors to purchase gifts and clothes for families in need, making their holidays brighter. Please contact Lynn Agnew, Angel Tree Coordinator at 314-646-3141 or lynn.agnew@usc.salvationarmy.org for more information on toy donations. If you are interested in becoming an Angel Tree volunteer, please contact Shawndell Williams at shawndell.williams@usc.salvationarmy.org or 314-646-3166. Volunteers are needed to sort, bag and distribute toys.

You can make Christmas merry.
