There are many ways you can make a difference.
The Salvation Army has several ways you can help.

On behalf of all those served by The Salvation Army, we thank you.

O Christmas tree, we need you!

The Salvation Army is asking for the public’s help with a St. Louis tradition.

The Army is in need of donated pine or blue spruce trees to place throughout the St. Louis region during the 2013 Tree of Lights Campaign. Ideal trees will be 30-40 feet tall and easily accessible in a person’s yard with no electrical lines overhead. The Army will remove the trees free-of-charge in November. Donors will receive a letter recognizing their donation to use for tax purposes.

The trees are a focal point of the annual Tree of Lights campaign – a 12-week fundraising and awareness effort that acts as the primary funding source for the Army’s services and programs year-round. All donations stay local, with 86 cents of each donated dollar used directly for programming.

For more information or to offer a tree, please call Angie Merseal at (314) 646-3193. Photos of the tree should be emailed to

    1) I would like an address to send a financial donation for your tree of lights.

    2) Also an address to send a financial donation for your Thanksgiving dinner.
