From physical needs such as grocery, utility and gift assistance,
to emotional experiences including holiday events and traditions, to spiritual guidance that provides healing and hope,
we work to assist the whole person through gifts that serve the body, mind and soul.
The Salvation Army is one of the largest providers of toys to children who may not otherwise receive Christmas gifts. This year, our Toy Shop program will bring joy to 23,000 Twin Cities children.
We help struggling households pay their utility bills, offsetting the added financial burdens that come with Christmas expenses and keeping the heat on during the cold winter season. This allows low-income families to maintain self-dignity and stability while keeping up with their bills.
The Salvation Army helps struggling families avoid falling into the cycle of crisis by supplementing their income with utility, rent, and other vital payments. Oftentimes, this assistance becomes the difference between shelter and eviction, between maintaining honest work and selling drugs or services for money, and between keeping kids in one place and moving them out of their home and onto the streets.
We spread Christmas cheer throughout the holiday season through traditions such as hospital visits, nursing home events, meal delivery, bell ringing, gifting programs, and clothing and Christmas toy donations. These services give the gift of hope and relief to low-income families, shut-ins, children of prisoners, and those without a home for the holidays.
