Annual EventS

Auto Auction
Proceeds from The Salvation Army's auto auction directly support our FREE substance abuse rehabilitation program. We host three auctions a year. Check out salvationarmycars.com for our current directory of vehicles, auction dates and information on how to donate your used cars, trucks, boats, golf carts, ATV's, scooters or RV!

Hip Hop Bunny Drop

Food 2 Fight Hunger
Benefiting our Food Pantry to feed hungry families
Our annual Food 2 Fight Hunger event occurs during a time of great need when our food pantry usually nears empty. The summer months historically show a drop in donations and an increase in need. You can help out by hosting a canned food drive at your workplace, church or club.

Christmas In July
More than 3,000 children receive services from The Salvation Army Augusta Area Command each year. Many of these children receive assistance through our Christmas Programs such as the Angel Tree and Stocking Programs. Help us to fill stockings early this year and bring joy to a local child's life this Christmas! Bundles of 20 stockings are available for adoption during the Christmas in July program. 

Christmas time Programs

Bell Ringing at the Red Kettle
The Salvation Army is widely known for its outreach during the Christmas season. Since 1891, red kettles have been a familiar Salvation Army tradition. Money raised through these kettles provides much needed funding for their free programs throughout the year. The Salvation Army depends on local volunteers to ring bells at various kettle locations to encourage donations. Click here to learn more about how you, your businesses or organization can support this great program!

Red Kettle Campaign MATCH Sponsor
Sponsor a Kettle this Christmas with a matching gift challenge dollar-for- dollar! Challenge kettle donors with the opportunity to double their gift by sponsoring a kettle with a match up to a dollar level that you  choose. The Salvation Army’s Red Kettles are one of the most highly recognized symbols of benevolence during the Christmas season. A great opportunity for your business to benefit from that visibility, and support our community at the same time. We will display your business, organization or family name on the kettle stand letting everyone know you’ve sponsored that kettle and matching the gifts. Choose to ring the bell at your MATCH kettle, with your employees wearing Company shirts or name tags.
