Bed & Bread Club®

Rochester Monthly Giving

The Rochester Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread Club® is made up of generous people like you who have decided to take on hunger and homelessness in their community.  Hundreds of small gifts are pooled together to create a big impact on our food and housing programs. Donors, like you, pledge a regular monthly gift that goes to work immediately for individuals and families served by the Rochester Salvation Army.

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:

  • Housing programs — Currently we receive 10-12 weekly requests for lodging, which will most likely increase in the next three-to-five years.
  • Food programs — Short-term and long-term economic changes will likely increase Rochester’s population of people requiring some form of temporary food assistance.

Be Part of a Big Impact

Proof of your generosity is seen on the faces of the people who are offered a hot meal, a bag of groceries, or a safe place to spend the night. Need knows no season, and our monthly giving program ensures we will be able to offer help whenever it is needed. There are more than 100 Bed & Bread Clubs located all over the country, all with the same mission—to provide food and housing to people in need.


*A record of each donation appears on a monthly financial statement provided by The Salvation Army.
