The Salvation Army of Connecticut & Rhode Island

The funds raised this year will provide nutritious food to children at The Right Place in Hartford through “Eat Right, Be Bright!” The Right Place provides healthy and nutritious meals to the children ages 3 to 5 attending our school readiness programs. The 116 students that attend The Right Place have access to two healthy meals and an afternoon snack each day. The meals provided are low-sugar and low-fat and incorporate whole grains, fruits, and vegetables. By providing breakfast and lunch to the children it enhances their school experience and ability to learn, and ensures they receive at least two nutritious meals per day. Considering our families are on limited incomes, our feeding program also eliminates the expense of families having to pay for breakfast or lunch for their child during the week.

The Salvation Army’s mission is to meet basic human needs without discrimination.  Our goal is to help individuals and families deal with the many challenges they face in their daily lives through social, educational, emotional and spiritual development.  All of our programs and services are designed to support and develop self-sufficiency and hope.

Throughout Connecticut, The Salvation Army operates programs to assist those most in need including shelters, school readiness programs, homeless prevention programs, academic enrichment, social development and recreational programs for children and young adults.

Our mission could not continue without the support of people like you. Your donations support our many services. Your time and efforts help us manage our programs. Your generosity makes a major impact on our ability to serve others. Without you, we could not serve those in need nearly as well.

For any and all contributions, we thank you!


The Salvation Army, an evangelical part of the universal Christian church established in London in 1865, has been supporting those in need in His name without discrimination for 130 years in the United States. Nearly 30 million Americans receive assistance from The Salvation Army each year through the broadest array of social services, ranging from providing food for the hungry, relief for disaster victims, assistance for the disabled, outreach to the elderly and ill, clothing and shelter to the homeless and opportunities for underprivileged children. 82 cents of every dollar The Salvation Army spends is used to support those services in 5,000 communities nationwide.
