The Salvation Army Urges Americans to Learn More About the Impact of Giving Tuesday Donations

Nation's largest direct provider of social services is battling rising costs to fight increased need of assistance for over 25 million people annually 

ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- With the 132nd annual Red Kettle campaign underway, the longest-running philanthropic fundraiser of its kind, The Salvation Army is emphasizing its mission of serving those most vulnerable through this year's "Love Beyond" messaging. Love Beyond is also a symbol of the resources and programs that 25 million people rely on year-round when they turn to the nation's largest direct provider of social services for assistance.

Giant Red Kettle

"More than 2 million people rely on The Salvation Army during the holiday season alone, but the truth is our communities need help year-round" said Commissioner Kenneth G. Hodder, National Commander of The Salvation Army. "Financial support on Giving Tuesday is critical to providing love beyond the holidays to millions in need whether through emergency disaster services, housing, feeding, or youth support."

The number of those in need of food, shelter and utilities assistance continues to rise as families face challenges ahead of the holidays. Latest numbers from the US Census Bureau show 91.8 million Americans have had difficulty paying for essential household expenses.

"Expenses to shelter and feed the most vulnerable have dramatically increased due to inflation and supply chain issues. Food prices have seen their highest increase since 1979. Requests for help are growing across the country with many Salvation Army locations seeing an increase from 30%-50%. That's why Giving Tuesday matters." added Hodder.

Funds raised in 2021 supported services for more than 25 million people living in America. To get involved on Giving Tuesday with The Salvation Army:

  • Visit and enlist in Love's Army with a sustaining gift of $25 per month. A $25 monthly gift over the course of one year provides:
    • More than 234 meals to those in need 
    • Christmas presents for 4 children
    • Overdue utility bill payments for a family in need
  • Donate digitally with Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, and Venmo at any Red Kettle across the country
  • Donate cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin or Ethereum
  • Ask Amazon Alexa to donate by saying, "Alexa, donate to The Salvation Army," then specifying the amount
  • Give any amount by texting "KETTLES" to 51555
  • Encourage friends and family to give virtually through options like Facebook Fundraiser

Every donation provides help and hope to those in need, and all gifts remain in the community in which they are given.

Across the nation, volunteers and supporters will participate in Giving Tuesday activations to raise awareness of the need for support, including celebrities, artists, and influencers. In New York City, The Salvation Army will once again stand up the biggest red kettle the city has ever seen, bringing with it holiday cheer and a call for digital donations and community togetherness.
