Since 1865 The Salvation Army has worked year-round to help meet the needs of people throughout most of the world. During the Christmas season the Salvation Army becomes visible to many due to the people who volunteer at the its kettles to raise money for those in need.

In its mission, the Salvation Army assists 25 million Americans annually and serves 130 countries around the globe with over 1.5 million members consisting of officers, soldiers and adherents. Each year thousands of children in greater Tulsa have a merrier Christmas because of Salvation Army programs such as the Angel Tree and the Annual Christmas Luncheon and Fashion Show, which was recently held at the Tulsa Renaissance Hotel with Jackie Poe as the Honorary Chair.

Salvation Army programs help in areas such as support for adults, children and families; adult rehabilitation services; and disaster services. For more information, visit salarmytulsa.org.
