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 127 years ago. The work and ministry will continue to grow providing human outreach by offering spiritual, emotional and assistance to people in need.
You can help us continue our efforts to do the most good with a simple donation.
Please Consider A Year-End Gift
The holiday season is upon us and the sights and sounds of Christmas are everywhere. Hiding behind the decorations and twinkling lights are many people that continue to struggle with basic needs every day.
It's hard to see, but it's not hard to help.
Please make a gift to The Salvation Army and help bring the joy of Christmas to children who come to us hungry, families facing unspeakable hardships, and any individual who needs special care.
Now is the perfect time to submit your year-end gift and make a difference in the life of someone in need. To make a local contribution please click on one of the links below.
