The Need is Urgent

The economic impact of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic is vast: schools are closed, businesses are threatened, and tens of thousands of people are newly out of work. The Salvation Army is being called to respond to this crisis and provide for people in need.

As of July 1, 2020, we've provided more than:

181,000 Pre-packaged food boxes

12,500 toilet paper rolls

27,000 hygiene kits

LAFC Drive-Thru

On May 14, 2020, The Salvation Army California South Division put on their largest drive-thru food distribution yet at Exposition Park. With friends from LAFC and the park, we were able to distribute food & supply boxes to up to 2,000 pre-registered families.

Join us in answering the call. When you donate, you will help us provide services and assistance to people facing economic hardship. The support of a bag of groceries or spiritual care can go a long way for people facing uncertain times ahead.

Helping people in need is our specialty, but we can't do it alone.
