Help During Disasters
The Best Way to Help
During disasters, the best way you can help survivors is to contribute financially. Cash donations allow disaster responders to immediately meet the specific needs of disaster survivors without incurring many of the costs associated with sorting, packing, transporting, and distributing donated goods. Salvation Army disaster services are funded entirely by donors, and The Salvation Army uses 100% of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief operations.
The Salvation Army has opportunities for you to serve in times of disaster with volunteer teams. We provide training across a wide range of volunteer support services and keep you connected with your local Salvation Army for updated information.
If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please visit our national disaster services website.
Host a Food Drive
Food drives are an excellent way to help contribute to our food pantry. We serve an average of 400 clients a month. Each client receives enough food to feed the entire household for three weeks. To get started, please contact Gwen, Social Services Director at (920) 684-7117
Host a Toy Drive
New toys and clothing during the holiday season are always needed. If you are interested in making a donation, please bring it to the corps.
