Online Red Kettle Check-in!

NASHVILLE, TN, (Nov. 22, 2013)
The money collected through our famous red buckets go toward the many programs we operate through our Corps (churches) and our Center of Hope in downtown Nashville, such as the Golden Agers, youth ministry, food pantry and life skills learning classes.

Whether you drop a penny, a $1 or much more than that, you are:

  • playing a role in the direction a teen takes as he participates in our after school programming; 
  • feeding a family of four after both parents were laid off from their job; 
  • enabling someone to attend free GED classes, equipping them to pass the test and make their way down a new career path, among many.

One of the strongest tropical cyclones ever recorded.

NASHVILLE, TN, (Nov. 9, 2013)
Typhoon Haiyan slammed into numerous villages scattered along the Western coast of the Philippines yesterday and it’s estimated that over 1,200 have perished with many injured and unaccounted for.

The Salvation Army has been in the Philippines since 1898 and we have served the needs of the island by way of disaster relief, operating children’s homes and learning centers along with many churches throughout the country. In the photo above, Major George Estocado is seen carrying items to families stranded in Manilla after massive flooding struck the city in September. The Salvation Army is already underway in assessing and heading out into the field to help our brothers and sisters who have been immobilized by Typhoon Haiyan.

If you support The Salvation Army in assisting survivors of Typhoon Haiyan 100% of what you donate to disaster relief, goes to disaster relief.

Angel Tree

NASHVILLE, TN, (Oct. 14, 2013)
The Salvation Army Nashville Area Command’s Angel Tree program is officially underway and we’ve just completed our first full week of registering families for Christmas assistance.

Over 1250 families have walked through our doors seeking a little hope, love and light this Christmas season and we have 2 more weeks to go!

From morning to the early evening, families huddle at long white tables and share their need with staff or volunteers who  first qualify them, then document clothing sizes, a need and a wish.

As you make your way up and down the aisles, your ears will quickly pick up the small voices of children sharing on what they’d like their wish to be this Christmas. Like the boy age 12, asking for a special light for his room that shines stars on his ceiling when it’s time for bed.  Or the little boy, age 9, who shared that a classmate let him play a Nintendo DS which he had never seen before and he really enjoyed it and would love to have one for Christmas.  Or the girl age 10 who wanted a Christmas tree for her family and the little boy who wanted designer duct tape to decorate his room.  The girl who wanted an electric toothbrush and the 3 children ages 5, 8 and 10 who all wanted a picture of Jesus and his 12 disciples.

If you’d like to be a part of this amazing phase of Angel Tree, we’d love to have you!
