Combat natural disasters with acts of God

We know that disasters can happen at any minute, and it is important to be prepared. Your donation to our Disaster Services fund is not an average gift. It provides our teams the resources for when emergency calls. It stocks our canteens and purchases clean-up kits. When we arrive on the scene, your donation will already be working.

Donate now to the Salvation Army 100% of your donations today will go to help those recovering from this storm.
