During the holidays, we work to give entire families gifts that serve the body, mind and soul.
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 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.
Since 1986, project Bundle-Up has raised $15 million and provided new winter outwear to over 280,000 children and senior citizens in low income households across Western PA. It’s much more than just keeping warm… it’s about growing kids’ self-esteem and giving them the confidence to excel in the classroom. Click here to visit the project Bundle-Up website.
We put new clothes and toys under the tree for thousands of children who usually have to go without Christmas gifts. Anonymous donors adopt individuals and families to help make the season brighter for both the gift giver and receiver. Click here to learn more.
From hosting sit-down Christmas dinners to delivering meals to stocking food pantries, we give the gift of a full stomach to many. The Salvation Army makes sure low-income families, struggling seniors, and those without a home for the holidays have something to eat. In Allegheny County, we serve thousands of hot meals at various locations including the University of Pittsburgh, Westin Convention Center and the Omni William Penn Hotel.
The Salvation Army helps struggling households pay their utility bills, offsetting the added financial burdens that come with Christmas expenses and keeping the heat on during those cold winter nights. This allows low-income families to maintain self-dignity and stability while keeping up with their bills.
We spread Christmas cheer each holiday season through traditions such as hospital visits, nursing home events, meal delivery, bell ringing, gifting programs, and clothing and Christmas toy donations. This gives the gift of hope and relief to low-income families, shut-ins, children of prisoners, and those without a home for the holidays.
This program provides underprivileged children the opportunity to celebrate the holidays with new toys, clothes and other basic needs. Sheetz employees shop, wrap and host parties for all the participating children and families. Over $1.4 million worth of items was distributed last year, making the holiday brighter for more than 8,800 children across six states. Click here to learn more
