Be Part of the Miracle during this Time of Giving

The Salvation Army is blessed to share ‘hope’ with people every day.  This comes through providing food, clothing, a listening ear, an encouraging word, a warm bed, a safe place, healing, stability and support to find a place to call home!  We could not do this without the generosity of people in our community who donate and support the work of The Salvation Army and the most vulnerable in Abbotsford and Mission.

As you take time to reflect on your life and the real meaning of the Christmas Season, may you embrace the gift of the present, and may your heart beat with thankfulness and generosity.  With your donation and partnership, The Salvation Army will continue to offer hope to the most vulnerable as we “share the love of Jesus Christ, meet human needs, and be a transforming influence in our community”.

Help us ensure that no one is forgotten this Christmas.    Here are some of the ways we work to make Christmas more meaningful for those in need:
