Each year, The Salvation Army organizes an Adopt-A-Family program. Through this program, sponsoring groups are given the name of a family in need within the Greater Toledo area to assist at Christmas. Sponsors then provide gifts and food for their assigned "adopted" family. The sponsor has the option of choosing the family size that they wish to assist. In 2012, we were able to serve 165 families through the Adopt-A-Family program.
The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program provides new clothing or toys for children of needy families through the support of donors. Found in local companies and corporations, Angel Trees are decorated with numbered paper angel tags with the first name, age and gender of a child in need of presents. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.
Camp NEOSA is a ministry of The Salvation Army. The camp is located on over 200 forested acres on a peninsula of Leesville Lake in Carrolton. The mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to provide a great camp experience to over 1300 children every summer, ages 6-12.
