During the warmer months, The Salvation Army partners with the local food bank to host food give aways or “Pantry-on-the-Go”, which is a large food distribution event to provide immediate supplementary food assistance throughout the community. Salvation Army Angel Tree Program: The Salvation Army Angel Tree program helps provide Christmas gifts for hundreds of thousands of children around the country each year. Once a child or senior adult has been registered and accepted as an Angel their Christmas wish list is shared with donors in your community who purchase gifts of new clothing and toys. The gifts are distributed to the family to place under their family Christmas tree. Click HERE to learn more!
