Chattanooga, TN –The Salvation Army is excited to announce very generous friends have stepped forward to offer a matching gift opportunity for our community. Any donations made now through the end of April will be matched up to $25,000.00!

"There is no better time than now to give," states Major Al Newsome, Area Commander of The Salvation Army. "We are praying that this will generate excitement and donations, especially since we are seeing an increase in need. Each month there are on average 200 families for whom we are not able to meet needs. We need the communities' support now more than ever!" This past month alone there were 238 families who we could not assist with their utility bill. The Salvation Army needs your help so these needs can be met and families will keep their electricity connected!
