Cliff Avenue location (Family Services Office) from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. We have coats for kids and adults.

 

Thanks to you and your amazing support we made our 2017 Red Kettle fundraising goal.  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  

   

I am writing to thank you for your generous support of the work and ministry of The Salvation Army here in #SiouxFalls. Due to your support people across our community have received help with those basic necessities of life; food, clothing, and shelter. Children are instructed in brass instruments, take part in character building activities, and are fed. Older adults take part in monthly activities, food, and fellowship. Commodity Food Boxes are provided to over 400 older adults on a monthly basis. Our outreach to adults and children is made possible by your ongoing support.

Yet we have some pressing needs. Would you help? I know many of you are receiving requests for support, but I am asking if you would consider helping us in one of the following areas?

$500 provides a Pathway of Hope family with housing assistance
$350 provides one evening of meals through our weekend Sallie’s Table feeding program
$250 provides house painting for a senior
$200 provides transitional housing for a veteran
$150 assists a family with their rent
$100 assists a family with a utility payment
$ 75 assists someone with work clothing or tools for a new job
$ 50 provides an individual or family with a visit to our food pantry
$ 35 provides a child with a trip to summer camp in Nebraska

The Salvation Army will use your generous gift where they can do the most good for those in need. Donations may be mailed to The Salvation Army, 800 N. Cliff Avenue, Sioux Falls, SD 57103, made through our website at sasiouxfalls.org (just click the “Donate Now” button at the top of the page) or by texting “SiouxFalls” to 71777.
