NonProfitView – Salvation Army

By Chris Murphy

There are many ways to help those that need it the most during the holidays.
We like the Salvation Army because over 85% of all funds received go directly to those in need and all are served without discrimination. The best way to help is not to give to people in the streets, but to give to organizations that do the most good in the right places. The Salvation Army serves this way and you can be assured that your dollars actually go to food and shelter. This is a very important issue that we can help solve.

You can also help support Salvation Army in other ways. You can be a bell ringer for Salvation Army by calling 209-522-3209. You can do this as an individual, a family, or with a group. You can also give personal items that are needed in the shelters. Donations can be taken to 320 9th St or 625 I St. Items needed are: toiletries, bedding, underwear & socks. The shelter winter season begins Nov 2.

Kettle Kick Off
This is the big event of the year that was created by the legendary Modesto volunteer Bette Belle Smith. Modesto starts the giving season off big! Join your friends at the Modesto Center Plaza for the Salvation Army Kettle Kick Off. Nearly $200,000 gets raised to help prepare for the winter and holiday season. The Kick-off is Thursday, November 19, 11:30 at the Centre Plaza. Tables are only $100 for a table of 10 and nearly sold out. If you can’t make it please donate and support the teams that are raising $$.
