Thank you for your support!

Thank you for supporting The Salvation Army's annual Red Kettle Luncheon! We are so pleased to see so many individuals eager to help those in need right here in King County.

Thank you to everyone who attended, and thank you to our special guest Mark Wright for being our emcee again this year, and to all of the clients who shared their stories of overcoming incredible obstacles with the help of The Salvation Army and our generous supporters.

Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $320,000 - all gifts will go to work immediately serving local needs.

Right here in King County, The Salvation Army helps provide shelter, food, youth programs, domestic violence aid, disaster relief and addiction recovery, and we can't do it without you. If you were unable to attend our luncheon, please consider a donation and remember all gifts of $300 or more will be matched.

Thank you to our special guests

Mark Wright, KING 5

PATRICIA  - After moving from Chicago to Washington with nothing in their possession, Patricia and her family soon found themselves in need of assistance. Through the help of her neighbor she found The Salvation Army where she received food, diapers and Christmas assistance.

DAVID - David’s life would look very different if it weren’t for The Salvation Army. Throughout his childhood he attended The Salvation Army after-school programs, played on sports leagues and went to camp in the summers. Today, he considers The Salvation Army a second home and he now works with children in The Salvation Army after-school program.

JONATHAN - Jonathan came to The Salvation Army at a young age when his family became homeless. After being discharged from the military, he became addicted to drugs and alcohol and wound up spending time in prison. Now, through the help of The Salvation Army, he has a job, a home, and restored faith in God.

TAAISHA - Taaisha suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter and began to use drugs and alcohol to cope. She lost her job as a nurse, lost custody of her daughter and became homeless. After graduating from The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation center, she is now sober, off the streets, working, and re-establishing a relationship with her daughter.
