Thank you for helping us serve 62,491 people through our Social Services programs last year!
Adopt A Kettle
OPTION 1: VOLUNTEER
Did you know that The Salvation Army must pay workers to staff the red kettles throughout the season? It’s true . . . because we do not have enough volunteers to fill all of our locations each day, and people in need are counting on us to raise as much as we can during this short period of time. When you volunteer, we’re able to put 100% of what is raised in the red kettle back into programs and services that help men, women, and children every day!
Dates: November 11—December 24
Times: Mon.—Fri., 12:00—8:00 p.m., Saturdays, 10:00 a.m.—8:00 p.m.
Full and Half-Day Shifts Available!
To become a Red Kettle Volunteer, contact: Sarah Muñoz, Sarah.Munoz@uss.salvationarmy.org 727-725-9777, ext. 104
OPTION 2: SPONSOR
When you sponsor a kettle for either one day or one week, you’ll be helping The Salvation Army raise much-needed funds to serve your neighbors in need 365 days a year.
We have exciting news! When you sponsor a kettle, an anonymous donor will MATCH 100% of your sponsorship! You can sponsor a kettle for one day for $500 (what a volunteer group typically raises in a day), or you can sponsor a kettle for one week for $2,500 (a one-day sponsorship discount)!
During the length of your sponsorship, your name or company will be posted at the kettle, letting everyone know that you are doing the most good for your community!
1 Day Sponsor = $500, 1 Week Sponsor = $2,500
Dates: November 11—December 24, Monday—Saturday
To become a Red Kettle Sponsor, contact: Jessica Flores: Jessica.Flores@uss.salvationarmy.org, 727-725-9777, ext. 105

Bed and Bread Club
The Salvation Army’s Bed and Bread Club is a monthly giving program, made up of generous people like you who have decided to take on hunger and homelessness in their community.
The program is vital to helping hungry and homeless men, women and children get back on their feet. Your gift will go even further because our paperwork will be reduced and our income will be more predictable, putting your gift to work immediately to help the people who are served by The Salvation Army.
Kettle Season Pass
With your one-time donation of $20, $50, or $100, we’ll send you your Kettle Season Pass — a handsome button to wear on your coat or jacket throughout the holiday season. It’s a great way to let others know that you support The Salvation Army, and that you’re someone who cares about your neighbors in need.

Americans continually set new records for charitable support.
In fact there are many ways that you can make a gift. The most common is by simply writing a check or giving cash. Many of these same individuals and families plan today for a gift that comes in the form of a bequest articulated in the Last Will and Testament.
But there are a number of other ways that friends provide critical support to The Salvation Army. Often the way that a gift is made can have dramatic impact on helping to meet the long and short-term objectives of a donor.
Almost every gift to a qualified charitable organization comes with certain tax benefits, thanks to our government’s ongoing encouragement of the private support of charities. However, in many situations it is possible to receive more than just a charitable income tax deduction.
Indeed, certain ways of giving make it possible to bypass capital gains taxes on appreciated assets, significantly reduce estate taxes, and even establish a whole new source of income for yourself and your family.
The professionals in our Office of Planned Giving have been trained to help match your gift with your objectives. They’ll provide you with no obligation, confidential information that will ensure that your gift – whether cash, insurance, stock, property or a gift in trust – is timed to meet your objectives and deliver maximum value.
Your support is greatly appreciated and we are available to provide you with information and assistance in this important matter. If you need wording to include The Salvation Army in your estate plans, creating a life income for you and your loved ones, or in updating or creating your estate plans, please do not hesitate to contact us.
