We are calling on artists from Palm Beach to Miami to help the fundraising efforts that are critical to maintaining the important work we do to assist those in need. The Salvation Army of Palm Beach County needs your support to promote the arts through charity. We seek artists who will share their vision and interpretation of The Salvation Army’s core values.

Artists are invited to submit artwork that reflect to one or more of the following categories:

  • Passion
