We're Here For You

No one should be left without during Christmas. We offer assistance, without discrimination, at your neighborhood Salvation Army Corps.

Every Community is Different

The Salvation Army's mission is to serve the needs of each community. Because each community is unique, each center offers different services.

Christmas Assistance

Angel Tree

The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is a holiday program designed to raise in-kind gifts for a single child whose family is in crisis as a result of unemployment, homelessness, medical issues or other difficult circumstances. Find Out More

Adopt a Family

Adopt-a-Family is a holiday program facilitated by The Salvation Army that pairs up a family in need with a sponsor to “adopt” that family. It is a unique program for families who have experienced a devastating tragedy or crisis during the past year. Find Out More

Online Angel Tree

Our Angel Tree is now online thanks to DayMaker! Read descriptions of local children who would otherwise go without presents this year, purchase an item on their wish list, and it will be shipped directly to their Salvation Army Community Center to be distributed to those special families before Christmas.

Toys for Tots

The Salvation Army is proud to collaborate with the Marine Corps Reserve Center's Toys for Tots program in Bell and Pasadena. All toys collected within the Los Angeles area will be distributed through local Salvation Army Community Centers. Those toys will then go to underserved children across Southern California.
