“This year has been a particularly challenging one for our community as we navigate the pandemic,” said Major Timothy Lyle, Divisional Commander, The Salvation Army. “Requests for our services have never been higher. We asked for the community’s assistance in helping us Rescue Christmas, and I’m so pleased to say they answered that call.”
The Salvation Army annually helps more than 23 million Americans overcome poverty, addiction and economic hardships through a range of social services. By providing food for the hungry, emergency relief for disaster survivors, rehabilitation for those suffering from drug and alcohol abuse, and clothing and shelter for people in need, The Salvation Army is doing the most good at 7,600 centers of operation around the country. In the first-ever listing of “America’s Favorite Charities” by The Chronicle of Philanthropy, The Salvation Army ranked as the country’s largest privately funded, direct-service nonprofit.
