Lending Your Support During the Holiday Season

The holidays are a time of celebration, but, unfortunately, that time of year also correlates with the largest numbers of people facing food or housing insecurity. This year, the pandemic has brought even more challenges to the table. With unemployment rates rising, The Salvation Army is expecting up to 155% more people to need its holiday assistance services. But it cannot do it alone. Your help is needed to assure these services have the necessary resources to fulfill the need. Your Extra Closet is accepting donations at each of our office locations in Mississippi and Arkansas.

The Salvation Army’s Rescue Christmas Holiday Initiative

Rescue Christmas has different programs to support the local community. In order to make sure no one goes unfed, it hands out boxes of food, serves meals, and helps pay for groceries. And when families get overwhelmed with bills, The Salvation Army’s bill-pay assistance program helps them get back on their feet to begin the new year. All of these programs are made possible by donations from the community. But with fewer red kettles out this year to collect donations, The Salvation Army requires more help than ever. You can donate at any Your Extra Closet office location to programs that will benefit that community.
