Dessert is in short supply for The Salvation Army’s Christmas meal to be held on Tuesday, December 25 from 11am-1pm. The community generously provides dessert each year for the meal serving thousands and thus far donations this year are falling short.
Donations of dessert items are currently being accepted at The Salvation Army Community Center located at 908 Yuma Street between 9am-5pm Monday through Friday.
Guests of The Salvation Army’s Christmas meal will be served plates filled with ham, yams, vegetables and all the traditional dishes by Salvation Army volunteers.
In 2011, The Salvation Army estimated it served nearly 5,000 meals on Christmas Day and expect a similar turnout this year. All are welcome to this free holiday celebration and no advance reservations are required.
The Salvation Army’s Christmas meal will be served from 11am-1pm at the following locations:
The Salvation Army
908 Yuma Street
Colorado Springs, CO
Fountain Valley Senior Center
5725 Southmoor Drive
Maintou Springs City Hall
606 Manitou Avenue

The Salvation Army is accepting donations to help cover the cost of this meal and providing assistance to those in need throughout the Holiday season. To donate, call 1-800-SAL-ARMY or visit http://www.tsacs.org.
