Members with Leadership OKC help The Salvation Army beat the $600,000 goal in 2011 for the Red Kettle Campaign.

We are thrilled to report that the 2011 Kettle Goal of $600,000 was surpassed thanks to your generosity!
This year, with your support, we raised $650,747 in Oklahoma, Cleveland and Canadian Counties.

As you know, our needs are greater than ever. It’s been an extremely difficult year for many of our neighbors. Here at The Salvation Army, requests for help are up dramatically.

On average, The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Commands provides hope and aid to 160,000 people right here in Central Oklahoma, as well as over 300,000 meals annually.

We need your help to:

* Provide food to hungry families
* Support our Salvation Army youth and children at our two Boys and Girls Clubs
* Shelter the homeless who come to us with nowhere else to turn
* Provide emergency items like clothing, furniture and other basics
* Serve all those in need with compassion and care.

Please consider donating online for a one-time gift or, even better, set up your monthly gift to sustain Oklahomans in need all year long.
