Host a Food Drive for The Salvation Army

The Salvation Army of Northwest Arkansas provides food to more than 2,000 families each year through our food box initiatives. Additionally, we serve meals every night of the year at both our shelter locations. During 2019 we served 126,555 meals. A majority of this food comes from donation drives hosted by local schools, churches, and companies. We would not be able to operate our programs without the charitable donations of our community. Download our Food Drive guide here to learn more and to get started. Once you have a date selected let us know, we’d love to help support your food drive efforts.

Where We Serve

We are the United States Southern Territory, which serves communities in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Washington, District of Columbia (National Capital) and West Virginia. We’re one of four territories in the U.S. and part of an International organization, headquartered in London. The other U.S. territories are: West, East and Central. Salvation Army territories are made up of areas of service known as divisions. There are 40 divisions in the U.S. – we oversee 8 of them. Divisions consist of centers for worship and service. These are the hubs where service to members of the community actually occurs. Our doors are open to all.
