Program Wish List:
Support the Youth and Music programs by making a tax-deductible donation today.
Learning is the key to unlocking the possibilities inherent in every young life. But on the streets of too many neighborhoods, a child’s love of learning is too often obscured by realities such as hunger and violence. Donating to The Salvation Army ensures that these programs can continue to help children in need across Clearwater and Upper Pinellas County.
To donate by mail, please make checks payable to The Salvation Army and send to:

5th Annual Doing the Most Good Dinner
You are invited to attend the 5th Annual Doing the Most Good Dinner to hear how The Salvation Army is meeting needs in Upper Pinellas County. This exciting event will be held at the Sheraton Sand Key Resort at a date to be determined.
Last year, The Salvation Army served more than 63,800 people in Pinellas County. All proceeds from this event will benefit The Salvation Army’s Social Services programs, including Pathway of Hope, which helps men, women, and children break the chains of generational poverty . . . for good.
Since 1865, The Salvation Army has understood the barriers that prevent economically-disadvantaged populations from meeting their basic needs. Many of the people we serve are on fixed low-incomes, earning minimum wage, supporting multiple family members on a single wage, or simply not able to find work at all. Your support will help us ensure a brighter future for many generations to come.
Above, please see event sponsorship levels for how you can further partner with us in doing the most good in our community. Additionally, giving at the top three levels will secure advertisement space for one year on The Salvation Army’s Doing the Most Good truck.
We invite you to take a tour of our facilities so you can see how your sponsorship will directly impact the lives of local families in need. If you would like to schedule a tour, or have any questions regarding the Doing the Most Good Annual Dinner, please do not hesitate to contact us.
