With your support The Salvation Army raised more than $555,000 on North Texas Giving Day, more than twice the amount we raised last year.
We’re thankful of your trust, time, and resources as we continue helping North Texans in their time of need.

Residents at our Carr P. Collins Center received a visit from pop music sensation Owl City. Led by Adam Young, members of Owl City stepped away from their tour to serve meals and build awareness for The Salvation Army.
We celebrated the work of The Salvation Army in Garland at our recent 2012 Annual Doing The Most Good Banquet at the Garland Arts Center. Scott O’Grady, keynote speaker and former Air Force pilot, described his six trying days of survival in Bosnia after his plane was shot down.
Dinner guests also heard the story of Sandra Silva. A native of Laredo who moved to Dallas after high school, Sandra endured the death of her disabled child, homelessness, drug abuse, and incarceration. Following her release from jail, she turned her life around, with help from The Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army participated in a field day at Southwest Airlines. There, Southwest Airlines employees signed up as volunteers for disaster relief operations and our upcoming Christmas season. We appreciate those who signed up and their willingness to participate when called.
