Assess the Need
FIRST, we assess the needs of each community in which we serve. We work to understand the obstacles, hardships and challenges native to the area's particular population.
Build the Programs
NEXT, we build local programs designed to offer immediate relief, short-term care and long-term growth in the areas that will best benefit the community.
Invest in the community
THEN, we offer the local programs to the local community working to continually optimize their efficacy via spiritual, physical and emotional service.
because every local community is different.
In a typical year, The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program puts new clothes and toys under the tree for 1 million children who usually must go without Christmas gifts. Anonymous donors adopt these little “angels” in an expanding Christmas tradition that makes the season more rewarding for the gift giver and happier for the receiver. This year, please consider taking a few more angels off the tree or donating gifts in bulk.
