Do you want to join The Salvation Army in meeting the needs of our local neighbors who are facing hardships this Holiday Season?


Here are some of the many ways that your generosity can change the lives of families and individuals in the Peoria communities:

Our Holiday Assistance Services & Programs:

Christmas Food Baskets & Assistance

The Holiday Season brings added pressures to families and individuals who are already facing hardships or personal life challenges. This can often lead to food insecurity for many of our community neighbors as they struggle to afford groceries or simply a warm meal.

That is why The Salvation Army offers assistance for those facing hunger through seasonal Christmas Food Baskets and general supportive services. These allow our mission to feed the mind, body & soul of those in need throughout the holiday season.

Toys & Christmas Present Assistance

More than a special moment in a child's life, a gift under the tree represents Hope for a family. Our community knows how important such a small gesture is for those facing financial hardships and that is why there are so many who give their support for The Salvation Army's Christmas programs. These services help local families in need by connecting them with the generosity of their neighbors, to ensure children have a present to open on Christmas without their families having to make a tough financial decision.

Emergency Financial Support & Assistance

The increased costs of utilities during colder months and the impacts of the pandemic cause many local community members to face difficult financial situations throughout the Holiday season. These hardships see families and individuals barely making ends meet, and an unexpected challenge can lead to eviction, no heat, or food insecurity.

The Salvation Army recognizes these difficulties, and part of our mission is to not only serve those facing the dire nature of homelessness or poverty, but also to prevent those, who are vulnerable, from falling into this reality. That is why we offer emergency financial support for utilities, rent and more. If our mission is unable to help, we readily guide our neighbors in need to other community resources in order to get the support they need.
