The Salvation Army Responds to COVID-19

As the coronavirus COVID-19 has evolved into a pandemic, The Salvation Army is monitoring the situation daily. Safety is of utmost priority, so we have ramped up efforts to slow the spread of this virus among our employees, volunteers, and the homeless and other vulnerable people we serve.

On May 5, 2020 Echelon members across the country are coming together in the fight for good to support The Salvation Army's COVID-19 relief efforts. To join us and learn how you can make an impact in the life of someone affected by COVID-19, click here.

In the United States, one in six people live in poverty, and more than 550,000 are counted as homeless. These populations severely lack access to proper care, hygiene, updated information, and medical resources, which makes them more susceptible to the virus. This is where we come in. This is who we serve. We need support from our communities to continue to meet the daily needs of these vulnerable populations.

Now more than ever, we need Echelon members to help raise awareness of The Salvation Army's mission and work. We need your help to encourage donations and support that will continue to help us serve those most affected by this pandemic. We have compiled social media assets for use by Echelon chapters and members which are available here. Please share these assets across your social networks and encourage those who are able to give through financial or in-kind donations.
