DID YOU KNOW?
The Salvation Army is a church! If you are looking for a church home we would love to have you join us. We currently have Sunday School classes at 9:00 am for Preschool, Elementary Age, Grades 7 - 12 and Adults.
This is followed by Worship at 10:15 am. We end our morning with a community meal in our Soup Kitchen. We also have various ministry and outreach opportunities throughout the week that will be listed shortly.
The Salvation Army can not do it alone.
The Salvation Army in Chambersburg provides assistance to people throughout our area all year long. As Thanksgiving approaches and with the Christmas Season just around the corner. You will notice the familiar RED KETTLE, we ask that you take a moment and donate. From now through the Christmas, those kettles represent the majority of the financial support we receive, which enables us to provide all the services that have come to be expected of The Chambersburg Salvation Army.
I am saddened to report we have seen an average increase of almost 25% request for service over the same period a year ago and just as saddened to see and about the same increase in our soup kitchen that provides a full meal five days a week, which last year reached 41000 meals.
In an effort to try and make donating easier this year we are using two new processes to make giving simpler. You can either scan the QR code on each of the stands that will direct you to our online Red Kettle or you can text SACHG to 80888 and donate $10 in two easy steps. Both of these methods will provide the income needed to The Chambersburg Salvation Army, Please remember you gift given here will stay here!
The Army behind The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army in Chambersburg has an Army behind itself. They are a special group of enlisted people. They are the "Volunteers" that do so much of the work that The Salvation Army has become known for on a daily and weekly basis.
They work in serving others through the Thrift Store, Soup Kitchen and other areas. They are giving of their time, talents to serve. On June 6th this group of people became the focus of service however for this night, this group of volunteers were not serving, they were the ones on the receiving end of the service.
The Salvation Army can not perform its every day task without this group of people. For more information on the opportunities of volunteering.
