Since 1890, armed with tambourines and a mission to serve, The Salvation Army held its first meeting in Delaware. More than 200 voices were lifted in song and prayer in the second story of 220 Market Street. Although our location has changed, the mission of The Salvation Army in the State of Delaware remains as it began 125 years ago. The work and ministry will continue to grow providing human outreach by offering spiritual, emotional and assistance to people in need. Check out the article from delaware online celebrating our 125th anniversary!

33rd Annual Blue Knights Toy Run
The 33rd Annual Blue Knights Toy Run took place on November 12, 2016. Motorcyclists stopped off at The Salvation Army along their route to drop off much needed toys for families seeking Christmas assistance this year. Over 1,000 families, including 3,000 children, are served through The Salvation Army, Delaware's Holiday assistance programs. This event delivered over 400 special gifts to our Toy Shoppe and raised more than $13,000.00 for our Christmas assistance program. Families in need are invited to apply for assistance and then invited to the Toy Shoppe closer to Christmas to select gifts for their children. This allows the families to have a more fulfilling Christmas, thanks to our many gererous donors and volunteers.
