Online Registration is CLOSED!

This year, the needs continue to be greater than ever. The Salvation Army remains on the frontlines of need to ensure that Hope Marches On this holiday season. We will provide assistance to struggling families, which includes providing Christmas gifts, putting food on the table, paying bills, and providing shelter for those without a home.

At The Salvation Army, we see how families are still experiencing the ongoing impacts of the pandemic. If you and your family are in need of assistance, please reach out to your local Corps. Find a location near you here

Throughout the City of Boston, The Salvation Army was able to distribute more than 10,000 gifts to over 4,500 households thanks to our generous donors in 2020.

NOTE: You will need to pre-register for Thanksgiving and Christmas Assistance separately using the links below.
