Holiday Assistance

The holidays can be an especially difficult time for people struggling to make ends meet. The Salvation Army of Greater Houston helps by providing hot meals, gifts, clothing, toys and much more during the holiday season.

Angel Tree Gift Assistance Program

The Angel Tree program provides Christmas gifts to disadvantaged children up to 12 years of age, and seniors 62 and older. Registration to receive assistance has closed.

Community Holiday Meals

Aiming to spread holiday cheer to all in our community, The Salvation Army hosts Community Holiday Meals on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day at two of its homeless shelters. Open to the public, shelter clients and guests feast on turkey, dressing, and all the trimmings, as well as several tasty desserts.
