THE BEST WAY TO HELP
The most effective way to help is through cash donation. Cash can be sent efficiently to Haiti and used to help those in need while giving a much needed boost the the local Haitian economy. the Salvation Army pledges that 100% of donations received for disaster relief will be used for that purpose.
Those wishing to donate money by phone can call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (1-800-727-2769)
By Cell Phone:
Send the word "Haiti" to 52000 via text message on your cell phone. A $10.00 donation will appear on your next cell phone bill. All standard text messaging rates apply.
Those wishing to donate online can go to www.salvationarmyusa.org and click on "Donate Online" on the right hand side.
Those wishing to send donations by check (please make sure to write "Haiti" in the memo field) can send the check to:
The Salvation Army World Service Office

The Salvation Army CANNOT Accept the Following for Haiti at This Time:
At this time we have no way to send volunteers to Haiti from the Midwest. We truly appreciate your willingness to help, but the situation in Haiti is very dangers and fluid, and there are no facilities to house Haitian survivors or injured. It would be impossible - at this point - to be able to host volunteers.
Donations of Goods:
We have received no requests for donations of goods, furniture, clothing or other material gifts from Haiti. Gifts of in-kind material are always needed by your local Salvation Army Thrift Store. If you wish to donate please call 1-800-95TRUCK or visit www.satruck.com. Please keep in mind that acceptance of material goods for "disaster survivors only" is not possible, as the logistics and added expense for transportation is not practical.
