The Salvation Army exists to meet human need wherever, whenever, and however we can.

I would describe The Salvation Army as literally an army of officers, ministers, soldiers, and volunteers. Now, they are not out there with weapons of destruction. They fight wars like hunger with meals and food donations. We all have an opportunity to become part of the solution to end hunger in our community.

War Against Hunger

You've seen the Red Kettles during the holiday season. That helps fund families in need during the winter. Just because the season changes, doesn't mean that families magically have everything they need. We have neighbors that need food assistance daily.

That's why I'm happy to tell you about a one-day event to help fight the 'War on Hunger' on April 14, 2023, and April 15, 2023, from 10:00 AM-6:00 PM both days. All six Schnuck's locations in Evansville and Newburgh will be collecting cash and checks for The Salvation Army.

Helping Food Insecurity

This will allow the volunteers to purchase the food people here in the community need. I really hope that as you buy your weekly groceries, and think about how you are going to plan meals for your family, you also think about the families in Vanderburgh and Warrick counties that don't have the same luxury. Every $25 donation will feed 16 families in need right here in the Evansville area.
