Brighten the holidays for a struggling neighbor through our Online Red Kettle

Donate Now

Millions of American parents cannot afford to buy their kids Christmas presents.

The holidays bring added financial and emotional stress to families living in poverty.

"It was such a blessing to be able to give my children Christmas gifts. I couldn't have done it without Salvation Army."

Holiday times are tough when you can't afford a meal or gifts. The Salvation Army helps families make the holidays bright no matter what.

The Salvation Army brightens the holiday season for those in need through:

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. Learn more about Bell Ringing or Register to Ring now. From October 1 - January 31st, join the Fight for Good by donating through our Online Red Kettle.

When you're struggling financially to care for your family, holiday gifts are often not feasible. The Salvation Army in partnership with the Kirksville Fire Department will team up this year to provide children a wonderful Christmas experience. Families sign up through the Salvation Army and are adopted by the Kirksville Fire Department. 

Holiday Meal Basket 
The Salvation Army provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. We provide a Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner box to struggling families. Each box feeds a family of six and includes meat, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, biscuits, cake mix, and more. To donate to this program please call our office at 660-655-7883 or drop non-expired donations at The Salvation Army Office (1004 W Gardner St. Kirksville MO 63501)
