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.

Every year The Salvation Army encourages groups, organizations, families, and individuals to participate in our Adopt-A-Kettle program during our annual Red Kettle Campaign. It's a great way to show your support of The Salvation Army. These funds are invested back into our community by offering food assistance, utility assistance, emergency help, and so much more.

At The Salvation Army, we know the power of in-kind contributions. Gifts In-Kind allow us to build our capacity, hold down our overhead costs, expand our capabilities, and ultimately, serve more people in our community.

As a nonprofit that operates several different social service programs, we always need a wide range of contributions. Some of our most needed items include canned food, clothing, bus tokens, grocery vouchers, school supplies, school uniforms, diapers and personal toiletries.

Gifts In-kind also allow individuals and organizations to donate excess inventory or specialized products to assist those with an immediate need, while knowing that their contributions are going towards a good cause. Many people enjoy giving physical items, since they are able to see the tangible benefit of their contribution.

All gifts are distributed through our social service programs, family service offices, or to our clients via special events. In fact, many organizations choose to partner with us through special events and provide the physical goods necessary - such as food for a Thanksgiving holiday meal - to not only make the event successful, but to expand the number of people served.
