The Salvation Army helps people like Robert back on their feet

Cashless shoppers have a new option to give to the Army’s red kettle campaign this year using their smartphone. Leaders hope adding Apple and Google payment options will boost fundraising to the campaign, which makes up 10% of The Salvation Army’s annual budget. Those donations fund programs providing housing, food and other support to people in poverty. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)

Northside resident Robert received help from The Salvation Army after his sons’ mother died and increased pressures due to the pandemic. He joined John Williams to share his story and says he didn’t know where he’d be if The Salvation Army didn’t help.
