Get your business involved in helping change the lives of needy families in your community. It’s simple, quick and easy. Just register your business to participate in The Salvation Army’s Christmas in July. All contributions from Christmas in July go to local Salvation Army programs and services that provide help and hope to families and individuals affected by crisis, poverty, hunger, isolation and troubled relationships.

Choose a program below or create your own.


Casual For A Cause

Whether it’s dressing up or dressing down, a change in the dress code can be fun. Why stop there! Have a theme day like western, Hawaiian or even 80’s prom. Employees set a donation amount and make a contribution to participate.


Donate A Dollar

Businesses ask customers if they would like to donate a dollar or more to help the community. If a donation is made, the customer gets to write his or her name on a paper kettle that can be displayed.


Angel Tree

Toys are a key element for the Christmas City Toy Shop. Host a toy collection now, or sign your business up to be a part of our Christmas Toy Drive.



There are volunteer opportunities year-round throughout the city. Fill in where help is needed or let us know how you would like to help out.


Create a unique event of your own

The Salvation Army encourages businesses to think of creative ways and events to raise money on their own. Ideas include ice cream socials, car washes and bake sales.


Become a Bed & Bread Club member

Encourage your staff to sign up for The Salvation Army’s Bed & Bread Club. For as little as $10 a month, you can help The Salvation Army provide nutritious meals through our feeding programs and more.
