Restoring Hope

Hope allows The Salvation Army to Transform Lives

The Salvation Army's Daily Mission - Restore Hope and Transform Lives

The Salvation Army is many things to many people. Those struggling to make ends meet find a helping hand to move back toward self-sufficiency. During times of disaster, those affected receive accommodations, a hot meal and assistance getting things back to normal. Families going through difficult times experience spiritual care to restore hope provided by Corps Officers and loving support from a community of believers.

Whether it's a hot meal, warm blanket, a fan, school supplies, or a box of groceries to make it to the end of the month helps transform lives. The Salvation Army stands ready to share the love of Jesus Christ with everyone. The Wichita Metro Area Salvation Army has been a beacon of light in Sedgwick County through our Programs and Services.

We can do more good when we Restore Hope and Transform Lives.  The Salvation Army must meet the needs for Wichita and our South Central Area through the year. 


     

Tools For Schools Campaign - Prior to school beginning, we partner with Spirit AeroSystems, and Meritrust Credit Union to restore hope for our educators with help to transform the lives of our students. This unique campaign provides school supplies directly to teachers and counselors to support their curriculum and into the hands of students. Truly - doing the most good! This annual campaign has become a major community undertaking collecting nearly 1000 school supply items.
 

 
Warm Hearts Winter Wear Distribution 
-
This past year The Salvation Army teamed up again with KAKE TV for their Coats For a Cause coat and winter item collection campaign. Along with In The Bag Cleaners, community partners helped us collect a record breaking 20,000 items of winter wear clothing and items. 

Through the year and especially in the Fall, we will be providing neighbors near our Downtown Koch Center campus (350 N Market), the Citadel Community Center (1739 S. Elpyco) and West Orchard Community Center (1910 S. Everett) the items needed for their family. Just bring proof of ID for everyone in the household (Sedgwick County residents ONLY) while supplies last.

NOTE: In an emergency, we are here during business hours to accommodate the need any day of the year. 

Share the Season - Through applications and partnership with the The Wichita Eagle additional assistance is given to meet Logo needs that are very difficult for families during the Christmas Season, as an example a high utility bills or medical bills. Check back soon, as applications may be online or phone-in options.

The need for volunteers, also an essential component, will be a vital part of our distribution. Check back soon, as we will be listing our volunteers needs. Dates have not yet been determined. Thank you for your patience.

Love beyond all is accomplished regularly with our Community Care Ministry - The Salvation Army visits nursing homes and delivers gifts to each resident of the home.

THANK YOU FOR THE AMAZING SUPPORT THIS PAST CHRISTMAS and we look forward to your support this upcoming Christmas, as our Angel Tree and Star of Hope Campaign WILL BEGIN TAKING APPLICATIONS OCTOBER 17, 2022. Our traditional Toy Distribution is December 8 and 9, 2022. More information will be coming soon. In the meantime, host an Angel Tree at your business, church or club. Donate toys or items that will bring joy to families, Seniors and individuals that may not have a loving Christmas. Make a donation during our Red Kettle Campaign at area businesses and grocery stores, beginning the day after Thanksgiving and continuing through Christmas Eve.

We served over 10,000 individuals and 3,000 families. We were pleased to make a wonderful Christmas for 7,600 children with more than 25,000 toys. 
If you would like to host an Angel Tree at your business or organization or help this year, please contact Dulcy Palnau at 316-425-6142 or email at: dulcy.palnau@usc.salvationarmy.org.

 

Volunteer to Restore Hope and Transform Lives - There are so many ways for you, your family and friends to get involved with programs and services provided by The Salvation Army, every day of the year.  Click here to see all the volunteer possibilities so - you - can make a difference in people's lives.

Restoring Hope to Transform Lives can only be accomplished through the generosity of our neighbors and friends in the Wichita area.
