Responding to the Coronavirus: Keeping Our Communities Safe

Mar 16, 2020

The Salvation Army Wisconsin & Upper Michigan Division remains committed to Doing The Most Good for our neighbors in need, especially now as we respond to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. After taking into consideration all of the federal, state and local guidelines, our worship and community centers are making adjustments to their daily activities. See the list below for adjustments to programming. This page will be updated as changes are made.


Officers will be on site and buildings will be OPEN for emergency assistance such as food pantries.

All summer camps at Army Lake Camp have been CANCELED.

For your safety through social distancing, if you would like to help The Salvation Army of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan we are asking that you give in two ways: 

  • Mail a check to The Salvation Army, 11315 W. Watertown Plank Rd., Wauwatosa, WI 53226 and in the memo write "CV19 Help WUM"
  • Donate online
  • Text 'WUM' to 24365
