Hope Is Greater Than Fear
The Salvation Army of Greenville's Response to COVID-19
In this time of crisis, you can help The Salvation Army serve those affected by COVID-19. We are already there for the most vulnerable in our community: those whose wages are gone, those who need food, those who have no place to call home and so many others who desperately need help and hope. But we cannot serve those in need without your support--now and throughout the year.
