The Salvation Army is always looking for items to help in our various programs. Below are several lists that would help us supplement our programs and off set the cost of us directly purchasing them.

If you are out shopping and there is a two for one sale, buy one and give the extra to us. This works not only for food items, but personal needs and baby items as well. Print out the lists and keep them with you as you shop or interact with others at work, school, church or the community group you belong to. Share it with others and encourage them to help!
