About the Boyertown Salvation Army

The Salvation Army of Boyertown seeks opportunities to come alongside people in the community to provide hope, healing, and help. Our main mission is to provide physical, spiritual, and emotional support, all done in the name of Jesus.

Church and more!

No Judgment Zone!

The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

 

Food Pantry and Hot Meal programs

Food insecurity is everywhere. Every day, more than 48 million Americans face the threat of hunger. This occurs in every county in the United States.

There are people who will starve to death today. There are people who have to eat mud pies daily. We don’t truly understand how blessed we are in America. As Christians we are to feed the poor and help people who are in need. Feeding the needy is part of serving one another and as we serve others we are serving Christ.

The Boyertown Salvation Army provides food to people in 11 local ZIP codes that have over 35,000 people living in our region.   We always need canned food, soup and more.  Please help us help your neighbor!

We also offer a noon time hot meal Monday through Friday to anyone who needs a meal and a place to feel God's love.

This is also a great way to volunteer and help give back!

Donation Bin

The Salvation Army is a charitable organization that provides clothing bins at the rear of our building. This program provides support to needy families and senior citizens.

We accept both monetary and in-kind donations. In-kind donations are basically clothing goods that are in like new- serviceable condition and can be used by others.

Simple act of kindness that really helps many others!

Canteen Truck program

Our Service truck helps serve food and Emergency and disaster events.  We provide food and water, hot meals and much more to First Responders and Families at these events. and so much more!   $150,000 New Truck coming soon to do even more goodwill

Red Kettle Program

The red kettle is the gateway to giving for people of all ages. When you put money in a Salvation Army red kettle, you help meet needs right in your community.

Change goes in and change comes out. By donating, you help change a hungry stomach to a full one. You help change sleeping outside to sleeping with a roof over a person’s head. You help change the direction of a child’s life through good role models and structured activities.

When you see a red kettle between Thanksgiving and Christmas, please dig deep and know you are making a difference

It is truly a blessing to be a part of this "Faith in Action" type program that shares God's love and at the same time helps people in need as a true act of kindness and compassion.

Lenny Cox

Prayer team and Advisory Board member
The Boyertown Salvation Army has become to me one of the strongest examples of "what would God do" in so many situations. Everything from helping children going back to school to helping families when natural disasters happen to them. When so many find themselves in trouble, or need, the Boyertown Salvation Army is there to offer a hand.

The Boyertown Salvation Army's dedication to serve the Boyertown Community and beyond through the food pantry and Canteen Disaster Relief is amazing. The Love of Christ in action.

Jill Vincent

Advisory Board Member
Boyertown Salvation Army is much more than a place to stop for a meal or a bag of groceries. It is leaders and a group of people reaching out to singles young and old, couples and the well being for the whole family. Thanks for making a difference in the lives of our community!

The Boyertown Salvation Army, to me, is a place of refuge. A place that anyone can go and be a part of something bigger... Heart to God, hand to man. “What so ever you do to the least of my brothers, you’ve done to me!”

Randy Graber

Advisory Board member
I have personally seen the Boyertown Salvation Army serving the local community for over 35 years, with disaster relief, emergency services assistance, feeding or financially aiding local residents and their families in need, and more! Our community is blessed to have such a great organization! Please donate or become a volunteer today!

A Truck Load of Help!

Yes! it is time to upgrade and to expand the size of our "Emergency Service Vehicle" to a much larger and better equipped truck. The old truck needs replaced and has served MANY emergencies, disasters and events in our region since 2002.

It is now time to replace it as the unit has had problems and concerns that are now costing too much to maintain the old type equipment. This program is called out many times overt the year in our local area and has supported the food and drink needs of many First Responders and families in need.

The new truck will cost us $150,000. and have much better and larger capabilities to meet the needs in an emergency. Please pray about this as we are looking for partners to donate now so we can order and have this truck on the road in 2019.

Thank you and God Bless!
