The holidays bring added financial and emotional stress to families living in poverty.
The Salvation Army celebrates the birth of Christ by spreading His hope, love and joy to the less fortunate members of society. In fact, our gift-giving programs and fundraising initiatives are a direct answer to God’s calling to care for the poor, hungry, sick, and displaced.
From physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance, to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions, to spiritual guidance that provides healing and hope, we work to assist the whole person through gifts that serve the body, mind and soul.
Christmas Boxes Program
Christmas Assistance Program: This program provides gifts for children and Christmas food baskets for individuals and families with or without children. Applications for Christmas assistance begin in October. We partner with Toys for Tots to collect toys that are distributed through our program. We also collect toys at the Janesville Mall through the Angel Tree Program.
