Founded in 1865, the Salvation Army strives to uphold biblical values and ignite feelings of hope and healing within those who need it most, all in honor of Jesus Christ.

Over the years, the charitable organization has become ubiquitous, serving people in 133 countries, including several in our region that you can learn more about here.

This year, 10 News got into the Christmas spirit and partnered with the Salvation Army for the 2023 Angel Tree program.

Working to spread Christmas cheer, we shopped for angels, participated in bell ringing for the Red Kettle campaign and excitedly collected donations.
