Your donation helps those in the community who need shelter, meals, and hope.

ONE-TIME DONATION

We are grateful for your thoughtful consideration when donating to The Salvation Army.  Because we do not have any resources to restore or repair donations, we are unable to accept some items due to their nature or condition. Items that are worn, stained, ripped, or broken often cannot be utilized and divert funding from our program toward disposal. Thank you for being a part of our mission to save lives and restore families in the communities we serve. For your convenience, at the bottom of this page there is a Bulky Items pick-up directory. See below.
