The Salvation Army began its work in Covington on September 11, 1926. Since that time we have provided emergency financial assistance to thousands of families. Our services to the community includes help with utility bills, rent, food, clothing, hygiene products, just to name a few. We continue to provide toys and clothing for children at Christmas and back to school supplies.
The Salvation Army annually helps more than 23 million Americans overcome poverty, addiction, and economic hardships through a range of social services. By providing food for the hungry, emergency relief for disaster survivors, rehabilitation for those suffering from drug and alcohol abuse, and clothing and shelter for people in need, The Salvation Army is doing the most good at 7,600 centers of operation around the country. In the first-ever listing of “America’s Favorite Charities” by The Chronicle of Philanthropy, The Salvation Army ranked as the country’s largest privately funded, direct-service nonprofit.
