From providing family dinners and keeping the heat on to putting toys under the Christmas tree, we lend a hand with holiday events, offering healing and hope.
Millions of children in America will go without Christmas gifts because their parents can't afford them.
Financial and emotional stress dampen the Christmas cheer of families living in poverty.
The Salvation Army Brings Happy Holidays to Many Through...
We put new clothes and toys under the tree for 1 million children who usually have to go without Christmas gifts. Anonymous donors adopt these little "angels" in an expanding Christmas tradition that makes the season brighter for both the gift giver and receiver.
The money raised through our bell ringing allows The Salvation Army of Asheville & Buncombe County to help struggling households pay their utility bills, offsetting the added financial burdens that come with Christmas expenses and keeping the heat on during those cold winter nights. This allows low-income families to maintain self-dignity and stability while keeping up with their bills.
Food & Grocery Assistance
From hosting sit-down Christmas dinners to delivering meals to stocking food pantries, we give the gift of a full stomach to many. The Salvation Army makes sure low-income families, struggling seniors, and those without a home for the holidays have something to eat.
