How is The Salvation Army able to provide the programs and services to the community?
Because of the generous support of the community, we are able to fulfill our mandate. The Salvation Army raises funds at Christmas time through its annual Kettle Campaign and through its Christmas letter appeal. Individual and corporate donations to The Salvation Army throughout the year assist us in our work.

The other major income source is through The Salvation Army Thrift Store. Regular donations of good quality clothing, furniture and other household goods are sorted, cleaned and then sold at very low prices (or are given through Family Services where a need is assessed). All of the money raised in Miramichi goes towards providing programs and services in the Miramichi Area.
