Join the Bed & Bread Club®

The Twin Cities Bed & Bread Club® is a group of caring donors who are committed to meeting people’s basic needs through an ongoing, monthly contribution of just $10 or more. Member support supplies nutritious meals and warm beds to local people experiencing poverty through the Twin Cities Salvation Army’s food shelves, hot meals, housing programs and rent assistance.

Your Gift Addresses Vital Needs

Nutritious food and safe shelter are vital necessities for all of us. By supplying these basics for men, women and children in need, the Bed & Bread Club provides help and hope to rebuild lives. Your gift will help meet future needs in the areas of:

  • Food programs: The Twin Cities Salvation Army provides an average of 3,822 meals every single day through our hot meal programs and food shelves. Many of our youth after school programs also include a meal or snack to help ensure the children who come to our centers have plenty to eat.
  • Housing programs: About 900 people each night rely on The Salvation Army for a warm bed at one of our emergency, transitional or permanent-supportive housing programs. Additionally, many of our service centers provide housing help through rent assistance.

Stories of Those Helped

Rebecca

“All I can think of is dreams and goals and succeeding.” Those are the words of Rebecca, a hardworking single mother. She lives with her daughter in a rented trailer. Occasionally, Rebecca must go to a Salvation Army food shelf for bread, milk and fresh produce. She recently began a Salvation Army life coaching program. That help has led to a job promotion. Now, Rebecca’s days of needing Salvation Army assistance are numbered, and her dream of owning a townhome is within reach.

Eric

Not long ago, Eric had given up hope after 15 years on the street. He was jolted into reality when he saw himself on the TV news, sleeping under a bridge. “I don’t think anyone really sees themselves as homeless,” Eric told us in tears. The Salvation Army helped Eric pick up the pieces of his fractured life. That started with a hot meal, a warm shower and a welcoming bed at our shelter.
