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:
