Black Friday is a big day for shoppers. Let’s make it a big day for helping our community as well!
Here are 5 easy ways to support The Salvation Army this Black Friday.
1. Shop At Our Family Stores
When you shop at a Salvation Army Family Store, you’re transforming lives. The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers are funded by donations, and when you shop you’re providing spiritual, social and emotional assistance for men and women who have lost the ability to cope with their problems and provide for themselves.
Each center offers residential housing, work, and group and individual therapy, all in a clean, wholesome environment. The physical and spiritual care that program participants receive prepares them to re-enter society and return to gainful employment. Many of those who have been rehabilitated are reunited with their families and resume a normal life.
2. Shop Online With AmazonSmile
AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.
Amazon will donate 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Salvation Army Metro Divison whenever you shop on AmazonSmile.
Tens of millions of products on AmazonSmile are eligible for donations. You will see eligible products marked “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation” on their product detail pages.
3. Put Your Money In Our Red Kettles When You’re Out Shopping
When you give money to The Salvation Army Red Kettles, you’re helping to combat homelessness, hunger and drug addiction in your community. Money raised locally stays local.
4. Share Your #RedKettleReason When You Give
The Salvation Army is celebrating the many reasons that motivate you to give. We call them Red Kettle Reasons and they represent all of the different thoughts and experiences that cause you to give so generously each year.
5. Register to Ring
Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year, which means it’s also the biggest day of the year for our Red Kettles.
When you volunteer to ring a bell at a Salvation Army Red Kettle this year 82 cents out of every dollar raised goes directly to services in your community.
Our registertoring.com website allows you to search for shifts in your community. Sign-up is easy and takes only a few minutes.
In all the hustle and bustle over Black Friday, let’s not forget about Giving Tuesday!
Just $65 will help provide a basket of food, gifts, and vital help for a family in need. For those facing a Christmas with only hunger and heartache, your gift will deliver a healthy meal and holiday joy.
