Smiles Make the Greatest Gifts.

During the holidays, we work to assist the whole person through gifts that serve the body, mind, and soul.

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 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's mission shines brightest at Christmas.

We celebrate the birth of Christ by spreading His hope, love and joy to those who are hurting during the holidays and throughout the year. In fact, our services are a direct answer to God's calling to care for the poor, hungry, sick, and displaced.

The Salvation Army helps make spirits brighter at Christmas through:

 Angel Tree

The Salvation Army Angel Tree program is an opportunity to spread joy to struggling families during the holidays. Local businesses and retail locations host our special Angel Trees that allow donors to adopt "angels" by selecting a tag with the needs of a local child. The donor fulfills the Christmas wishes on the tag by selecting age-appropriate gifts of toys and clothing and returning the unwrapped gifts to the location on the tag.


In some cities, you can organize a group to adopt a family in need and help them have a better Christmas celebration. Check with your local Salvation Army to see if they offer this program.

 Thanksgiving and Christmas

The Salvation Army aids thousands of New Jersey residents with toys, food, clothing, visitations, and other needs during the holidays. Contact your local Salvation Army to learn more about the programs offered in your community.
