Help us do the most good.

Our programs are made possible because of generous donors that give back to their communities in a variety of ways.

Donations of groceries help re-stock Salvation Army pantries, so our meal and emergency food programs can continue. Items should be within the expiration date. We cannot use or give away expired foods. Drop off your non-perishables Mon-Fri (9 a.m.-3 p.m.) at The Salvation Army Hayward Corps, 430 A St., Hayward. Thank you so much for your donation.
