Red KettlesThe iconic Salvation Army 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.
Angel TreeWhen you're struggling financially to care for your family, holiday gifts are often not feasible. The Salvation Army Angel Tree program allows donors to purchase gifts and clothes for families in need, making their holidays brighter. Be an angel for a family in need this Christmas.
Coat DrivesFor more than 25 years, The Salvation Army in Rockford has hosted the Koats for Kids Drive to collect and distribute new and gently used winter coats to needy children living in Winnebago County. Additionally, The Salvation Army partners with the Chicago Bears and Jewel-Osco to collect new or gently used winter coats for families.
Holiday MealsThe Salvation Army provides Thanksgiving and Christmas meals for families unable to create a special meal themselves. We host homemade dinners at our facility and provide a Christmas dinner box to struggling families. Each box feeds a family of six, and includes meat, potatoes, stuffing, vegetables, biscuits, cake mix and more. Contact us for more information.
