Love is Sweet 2022

Every year during the month of February, The Salvation Army of Greenville partners with local restaurants and bakeries to raise money for a cause. Restaurant partners choose a menu item to feature as their "Love is Sweet" dessert, and agree to donate a percentage of the item's sales to The Salvation Army of Greenville. Restaurants can feature their dessert for just Valentine's Day, a week or the whole month of February. The Salvation Army will promote the participating restaurant partners during the month of February, and all funds raised by The Love is Sweet program will support The Salvation Army's social services programs that feed and house families in need.
