We Assist Families & Individuals across The Northern LaSalle Communities by...
- Christmas Food Baskets - Every Holiday Season is highlighted by family feasts and dinner with friends, but for those in need this can be a particularly difficult time to face food insecurity issues. The Salvation Army believes that every person deserves to have a nourishing meal for their body and soul - especially around Christmas! We offer the opportunity for families to sign up for food support in the way of a warm nutritious meal.
- Angel Tree Program - One of the hardest choices that many families have to face is between providing their children with presents on Christmas day or, often times, shelter/food/transportation & other essentials. This can take an emotional toll that we work alongside and countless local supporters to bring an end to. By signing up for our Angel Tree Tags, families can guarantee their child/children don't feel forgotten this Holiday Season, thanks to the generosity of those around their community & their Salvation Army.
- Partnering Locally - Every year presents new opportunities for our Holiday Season services. Local businesses, individuals & organizations team up with The Salvation Army to offer new ways to meet the unique needs of our community. Whether this means new ways to share funding, raise awareness, start new programs or more, our mission is always strengthening as a part of the local commitment towards Fighting For Good and creating change.

Donate Directly to Our Local Work - The easiest way to show your support every Christmas for those in need is by helping fund our services & programs.
