Many Americans are familiar with The Salvation Army's thrift stores which fund our well-known drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. And our iconic red kettles have become a symbol of the Christmas season and the spirit of giving.
But in hundreds of communities across the Western United States, The Salvation Army also operates programs and services which are designed to meet human need in Christ's name, alleviate human suffering, and promote wholeness by addressing the spiritual, social,emotional, psychological and physical well-being of those served.
The Salvation Army's social service programs vary slightly with local and regional needs. For instance, there are programs and services for homeless people, victims of domestic violence, at-risk kids, and so much more.

Each year 200 Middle School and Elementary School children participate in the Operation Clothe a Child Program, which is designed to provide up to $100 worth of brand new clothing to students in Kootenai County.
Students are pre-selected by their school counselor who would be most blessed from this opportunity. All fundraising is handled through The Salvation Army; there is no cost to the schools or families. All volunteers that help with the program have received child safety training.
Please contact your local school to
see if they are participating in this program.
