Many companies sponsor employee-giving programs that match personal contributions to The Salvation Army by individuals. Please check with your employer to see if such a program is available, as you could potentially double the impact of your gift! Most employers require you to send a Matching Gift form with your donation and for us to complete this form. Don’t miss this opportunity to double and possibly triple your gift! Contact Kristi Stratton at (904) 301-4839 for any questions.

Gifts can be made in memory and/or in honor of individuals at special times throughout the year, such as a birthday or anniversary.

A local Salvation Army representative will then mail a card to the person you’ve designated, stating that a donation to The Salvation Army was made on his or her behalf, Kristi Stratton at (904) 301-4839 to discuss your Memorial or Honorary Gift.
