Donate to Can-A-Thon

Join us in the fight against hunger in metro Atlanta.

Because we’re extending Can-A-Thon, we’re creating virtual and in-person opportunities for you to support The Salvation Army:

- Click here to donate online. Just $10 provides three meals for a family of four

- Text to Give “weCAN” to 770.685.6550 to donate to The Salvation Army

- Click here to shop the Can-A-Thon Amazon Wishlist to help fulfill a need.

Imagine 458,000 pounds of food. That’s roughly enough food to fill every seat in more than seven professional football stadiums combined. It’s also how much food The Salvation Army distributed to metro Atlanta families in just three months this year.

As COVID-19 continues to ravage our state, the need for food is bigger than ever: our goal this year is to collect 500,000 pounds to meet the growing demand. While communities rely on food pantries for support every year, we’re counting on you to help our neighbors through unprecedented unemployment, sickness and hard times.

We invite you to join The Salvation Army, 11Alive and Publix to stock food pantries for the 38th Annual Holiday Can-A-Thon. Your donations fill the pantries and help ease the burden of food insecurity for so many families in our Atlanta community.

On Friday, December 4, we are offering a COVID-19 safe, contact-less drop-off of non-perishable goods at eight of The Salvation Army’s metro Atlanta locations in Brookhaven, Canton, Doraville, Decatur, Fayetteville, Lawrenceville, Marietta or Newnan. Please visit our registration page to let us know if you are dropping off cans. 

For further questions please e-mail Joelle.Miller@uss.salvationarmy.org with any questions.

Thank you for spreading the word. We can’t end hunger without the support and generosity of those who are able to give back in times of need. With your help, we can stamp out hunger in metro Atlanta.
