The Salvation Army is Doing the Most Good to Transform Lives!
Help Fight Hunger!
Join the Girl Scouts and The Salvation Army to fight hunger! Of all the problems our communities face, hunger is one that can be faced head on.
Want to know how you can help? It’s simple and easy this year. Ask your friends, relatives and neighbors to fill grocery bags with nonperishable food items and leave it on their front porches for you to pick up and deliver to The Salvation Army food pantries. The Salvation Army will provide donation door hangers along with information to help you succeed!
