Make Change This Christmas
We will be providing Holiday Food Baskets for families in need in our community. To sign-up and see a list of specific food needs, visit www.timetosignup.com/salvationarmyhbg/ and click on “Donate Food Baskets for Thanksgiving & Christmas 2018.”
The Giving Tree - Host a giving tree in your group location, company or store. The Salvation Army Harrisburg provides “angel tags” for your tree, with gift suggestions and needs for specific local children. Your employees or group members purchase tag items to make Christmas special for a local child. Details are HERE, and the Form is HERE.
Adopt-a-Family - Choose the size of a family you would like to “adopt” for Christmas (ex: single mom with two children). Shop, purchase and wrap gifts from the family’s “wish list” and provide a holiday food basket or gift card. For a personal connection, you can even deliver the gifts to your adopted family yourself! Details are HERE, and the Form is HERE.
Adopt-a-Senior - Christmas isn’t just for the kids! Adopt an area senior citizen in need by delivering a home cooked holiday meal or food basket. Supplying a small gift is also optional. Details are HERE, and the Form is HERE.
Toy Packing & Distribution - COMING SOON-- Check back on October 15th.
Volunteer between December 10 - December 19 to help sort, pack and distribute toys and clothing for over 3,000 gift boxes.

Ring the Bells!
The official Red Kettle Season begins on November 15 and runs through December 24. What better way to plan a team or group activity than ringing the bells at an iconic red kettle for the Christmas season! There are many ways to get involved: Staff a red kettle, host a desktop kettle in your office or sign up for the 5th Annual Battle of the Bells Competition. To sign up for bell ringing, visit www.timetosignup.com/salvationarmyhbg/. Bell ringing shifts will be posted in mid-October.
