Across the United States and around the world, The Salvation Army responds to bring basic needs and spiritual care to those that need it most.

Many people wonder about how to best help during times of disaster response. While you can imagine that disaster survivors often lose everything from those clothes to their homes, the best way to help is to provide financial contributions.

Financial contributions are much more easily routed to local disaster areas whereas donated items — such as food, water, and clothing — require more complicated logistics and have associated transportation costs. Your financial gifts also allow The Salvation Army to quickly assess and meet the on-site needs of individuals while helping to provide financial stability to the local economy.
