The vision of The Salvation Army Oshkosh is to provide effective social and spiritual services to the greater Oshkosh community area in collaboration with community partners.
Located downtown across from the courthouse, the Oshkosh Salvation Army provides food pantry services to nearly one in ten Oshkosh households and provides roughly 50,000 meals each year to those not capable of feeding themselves due to disability or poverty.
Here is a list of current programs and services:
Birthday Club: Every child deserves their special day, regardless of their parents’ financial situation. The Salvation Army Oshkosh Birthday Club program provides free toys, ice cream and cake to client children on their birthday.
Community Hot Meal: Approximately 50,000 meals are prepared and served free of charge by The Salvation Army Oshkosh to those who can’t feed themselves either due to poverty or disability.
Food Pantry: Nearly one in ten Oshkosh households use The Salvation Army Oshkosh food pantry for emergency food assistance each year.
Holiday Programs: Seasonal programs like Adopt a Family, Coats for Kids, and Toys for Tots help ensure every Oshkosh area child can enjoy the holidays regardless of their parents’ financial situation.
Laundry Program: Sending children to school in soiled clothes can lead to bullying and social ostracization. The Salvation Army Oshkosh provides free laundry services to client parents who don’t have the ability to clean their family’s clothes on their own.
Sunday Service: The Salvation Army Oshkosh provides Sunday Services as well as a free post-service meal each Sunday morning.
Vet Ride: Area veterans are provided rides by Salvation Army volunteers to medical appointments to the Appleton V.A. Clinic free of charge.
