Welcome Friends!

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!

Annual Civic Recognition Dinner

The Salvation Army, Delaware hosted its Annual Dinner on October 17, 2016 at the Chase Center on the Riverfront. The dinner was our chance to recognize those that have contributed so much to our efforts and our mission here in Delaware.  We would like to thank all of those in attendance for their continued support and all those that work diligently to make the evening a success.

We would also like to thank our Master of Ceremonies, Michael Waite with the Blood Bank of Delmarva, for doing such a wonderful job throughout the evening.  Thank you to Ukee Washington, CBS 3 news anchor, who inspired us with words of encouragement during his keynote address.

Funds raised at the event go directly to support the operation of The Salvation Army’s Crisis Alleviation Programs throughout Delaware.
