The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. It's message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Last year, The Salvation Army in Clearwater and Upper Pinellas County served 51,609 individuals through a wide variety of programs and services, including utility and food assistance.
We visited 9,057 people in hospitals, nursing homes and elderly residential homes to let them know that their community cares for them.
We served 26,798 people during the holiday season, may through our Angel Tree program which provides toys and clothing for children who may otherwise go without at Christmas.
Our wonderful volunteers gave 15,570 hours of their time to help us serve their neighbors in need.
In addition to these programs, The Salvation Army continues doing the most good for Upper Pinellas County through youth character-building activities, summer camp, outreach, and various other programs.
Volunteers from all walks of life strongly support The Salvation Army in almost all of its activities. Their time and commitment are essential to the success of the organization. The millions of volunteers who function as part of the Army's ministry each year enhance the effectiveness of Army programs and services.
