Shef helping to Maximize the Impact of Your Gift

This season, The Salvation Army National Capital Area Command is teaming up with Shef to help our neighbors in need. Shef will match your donation through December 20, up to $75,000. As a bonus gift for you, you will receive a promo code* for up to $25 off any Shef purchase with your donation of at least $25.

During many months of this COVID-19 pandemic, The Salvation Army has used your donations to help us meet the increased need for food, up to five times pre-pandemic. This is especially true at Christmas in the D.C. Metro Area. Donate today to double your gift’s impact!


A note about Shef: Shef is a homemade cuisine marketplace that enables food-safety certified cooks to sell authentic meals in their local communities. The company aims to help immigrants, refugees, and restaurant workers impacted by COVID-19 make ends meet while sharing their culture and cuisine.

*Limit one promo code use per email address, expires on January 31, 2022, or after 2,000 uses.

Donate your gently used coats to help families this winter


Now through mid-December, bring any new or gently used coat to Burke and Herbert Bank and Crest Advanced Cleaners locations and help to keep local children and adults warm this winter. Alexandria, Virginia-based Burke, and Herbert Bank have partnered with The Salvation Army to collect coats for more than 10 years. Crest Advanced Cleaners will clean the coats free of charge. Then, The Salvation Army plans to distribute the coats in mid-January 2022.

So…reach into your closet and grab a coat you no longer wear, and donate it to The Salvation Army’s Coat Drive.
