    Be a Shield: Serve a Meal

    Click hereIn 2013, The Salvation Army served 66,019 meals at the Center of Hope Shelter in downtown Little Rock. In 2014, that number increased to 77,145. While this dramatic increase is troubling, we have faith that our volunteers will support us in filling this need.

    How you can help:

    GET ORGANIZED - Gather a group of friends, coworkers, or church members to serve a meal at our shelter. This is a great opportunity to get involved and SEE exactly how your gift is impacting the lives of our neighbors in need. Several local churches have made this a regular part of their ministry. School organizations have used this as a service project to fill requirements for volunteer hours. If you want to serve, but feel overwhelmed at the idea of cooking for such a large group, be a meal sponsor and let us prepare the meal for you.

    CAN’T SERVE? BE A SPONSOR – Depending on the meal, it can cost anywhere between $150 and $400 to purchase food for each meal at our shelter. If you are unable to purchase and prepare the meal, we would deeply appreciate your sponsorship at any level. As a sponsor, we can assign you and your team a designated night on our meal calendar.

    You can donate online or mail/drop off a check at our office at 1111 West Markham, Little Rock, AR 72201
