Story

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!" says the well known Christmas song and yet for many who are struggling to 'make ends meet' this is not the case. This year, our work during the Christmas season will be as busy as ever due the rising cost of food and heating. Many people in our City will be having to choose between "Eat or Heat" The ongoing concerns about Covid, insecure employment and the reduction in Universal Credit also mean we will continue to help families and individuals right across the festive period.

Despite the Pandemic in 2020, we were able to provide toys for more than 1000 children and food parcels for over 500 disadvantaged families and individuals in and around Birmingham. We also provided gifts and toys to local NHS Hospitals for adults and children who were in hospital over the Christmas period. 

We can only do this work with the help of others and the generosity of people who take the time to give to The Salvation Army never ceases to amaze us. This year, we will be doing our very best to make Christmas better for others in our city. Please help us to make it a wonderful (better) time of the year for them.
