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!

Doing the Most Good...The Heartbeat of our Community
The Salvation Army is gearing up for our Annual Dinner, which is an evening dedicated to honoring those that support our mission tirelessly throughout the year. As "The Heartbeat of our Community," The Salvation Army strives to Do the Most Good for those in need. This year the proceeds from our annual dinner will benefit the Pathway of Hope program, slated for roll-out in July. Pathway of Hope offers families a chance for a new beginning through extensive case management. Join the pulse of the community and help us make the change! Purchase your Annual Dinner early bird ticket today for just $75.00. A limited number of these tickets are available from now until July 31st, get yours before they are all gone (limit four tickets per person; not good towards the purchase of a table). The Annual Dinner will take place October 16, 2017.
Gearing up for Camp Ladore
This summer, over 100 Delaware young people will be attending The Salvation Army Camp Ladore in the Poconos. At Camp Ladore, there are many activities to choose from, including Archery, Boating, Challenge Course, Pioneering, Hiking, Nature, Arts & Crafts, Athletics, and Swimming. Also, during some of our specialty Salvation Army Music and Arts camps, we have Drama, Choreodramas, Dance, Singing, Timbrels, and Brass Bands. These activities help campers learn something new, accept a new challenge, explore the world God created, and help them grow in their interactions with others. We also incorporate Christian education into each one of our activities as the foundation to the child's time at camp.
Camp is a place where kids can Have Fun, Be Safe and Encounter God!
