Many have asked about donating in-kind items, such as clothes, toys, or furniture. The Salvation Army is not accepting gifts in-kind, since there are not suitable facilities to store these items, and manpower to sort and transfer them are also limited. Monetary gifts are flexible and portable, and they allow our disaster teams to purchase the exact supplies they need, when they need them,  in the amounts they need.  Click here for more information on this topic.

The local  Salvation Army centers have not expressed a need for volunteers at this time, but you can register your name here in our disaster database should a need arise.

Thank you for your continuing support of these communities. As always, your prayers are appreciated!
