Cash Contributions Encouraged
Donors are encouraged to contribute cash. In-kind donations require sorting, boxing, palletizing, storage, and delivery to the disaster location. All of these activities can be costly and time consuming, and therefore may delay service delivery. Cash donations allow The Salvation Army to purchase product to quickly and efficiently meet the most urgent needs of disaster victims. When possible, the purchases are made near the disaster site to stimulate the local economy and ensure quicker delivery.

It is easy to give to The Salvation Army:

  • By phone at 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-725-2769)
  • Online at https://donate.salvationarmyusa.org/texas/texas-dhq/disaster/texas-flood-tornado-relief
  • By Mail: The Salvation Army, PO Box 560001, Dallas, TX 75235
    Donations from the General Public

    Currently, The Salvation Army is not accepting in-kind donations from the general public for disaster relief operations.

    Used clothing and used furnishings are not needed for disaster relief.

    However, The Salvation Army depends upon your donation of used clothing and other items to support local programming. Please consider donating your used clothing to your local Salvation Army Family Store.
