The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command | October 18, 2021

With Your Help, Food Insecure Families and the Homeless in the Nation’s Capital Will Eat

The Salvation Army is most recognized by its Red Kettles during the holidays, disaster response, and thrift stores nationwide. We are those things and much more. The Salvation Army serves the most vulnerable people living in your community through 18 programs in the National Capital Area, including food and utilities assistance, youth programs, residential programs for young mothers, and homeless outreach. Last year, we helped 50,800 people. The Salvation Army responds to natural disasters and emergencies, quickly taking action to help Afghan refugees in need and those families hit hard by the economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Major Mark Woodcock, Area Commander, invites you to give through your workplace giving campaign:

“The Salvation Army needs community support to keep our programs running, neighbors helping neighbors. While our annual Red Kettle Campaign raises money to help support our programs, holiday contributions are not enough by themselves. We rely on donations throughout the year to serve people whenever they need it. Recurring monthly gifts from workplace giving mean that The Salvation Army has donations we can count on every month – and, in turn, that our neighbors in need can count on you all year long. Thank you!”

Your support at any level counts. A recurring donation of $10 helps 52 homeless neighbors have hot evening meal and case management. A donation totaling $1,000 supports a child for a full year of music education through our afterschool programs. Even $1 each pay period means that a family of 4 will have a special holiday meal. Donate today.
