Smiles Make the Greatest Gifts

Providing much needed assistance during the holiday season

Donate Now

Every year, parents must choose between giving their children gifts or paying bills. Individuals facing poverty often spend the holidays without the warmth of a shared meal or even a support system.

The holidays can bring added financial and emotional stress to families and individuals living in poverty. From gifts for children in need to special meals for those who would otherwise go without fellowship on the holidays and meeting other basic needs - we aim to bring joy back into the season.

The Salvation Army Helps to Make the Holidays Brighter:

Angel Tree

The Salvation Army's Angel Tree program provides new clothing and/or toys for children of needy families. Each Angel Tree is decorated with angel tags with the first name, age, and gender of a child who is in need of a gift. Contributors remove one or more tags from the tree and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children described on the tags.

Each year, we look for volunteer sponsors to place Angel Trees in secure, high-pedestrian traffic areas within their community, organization or office. The sponsoring organization serves as a collection place for the gifts and provides secure storage until a volunteer can collect them for distribution.

Christmas Toy Distribution

The Salvation Army of Lebanon believes that every child deserves to know the joy of a new toy and a special holiday meal with family at Christmas. The sad reality is that many families in the Lebanon community are not able to provide these joys to their children. We provide warm winter clothing, toys and other needs to children ages birth – 12 years old to the families that sign-up for assistance online the Angel Tree website.  

Must provide the following information: childbirth certificate, photo identification and proof of residency. Application open in October. (We are always seeking volunteers to help take applications.)

Red Kettle Campaign

The week of Thanksgiving, The Salvation Army’s signature Red Kettles, manned by bell-ringers, can be spotted at numerous stores throughout the Lebanon area. This annual effort is The Salvation Army’s biggest fundraiser. All of the funds generated through this event stay right here in our community to support our Christmas assistance and many programs.

This program represents the community spirit of giving at its best— through the funds that are raised and the hundreds of volunteers who make this effort possible. We are always seeking volunteers and groups to ring bells at our iconic red kettles.

Adopt-a-Family

In Lebanon, you can organize a group to adopt a family in need and help them have a more joyous Christmas celebration. The Adopt-a-Family Program serves a limited number of families who are experiencing extreme hardship during the Holiday Season. The common factor shared by all adopted families is their strong need for special care and extra assistance during Christmas.

You can make Christmas merry.
