Welcome To The Salvation Army Bermuda

The Salvation Army offers a variety of services and programs throughout Bermuda for members of the communities that we serve. These activities are motivated by a belief that each individual possesses an inherent worth and dignity. It is the goal of The Salvation Army to restore dignity and hope in the lives of those we serve through these programs as they experience times of need.

Salvation Army kicked off its Christmas Kettle Campaign

Thursday, 23 November 2023 at 12 noon, on the steps of City Hall was the official launch of the Christmas Red Kettle Campaign – our largest public fundraiser of the year supporting the people of Bermuda.

The event featured Tom Oppenheim (Deputy Governor), MP Tinee Furbert (Minister of Social Development and Seniors), MP Lt. Col. David Burch (Minister of Public Works), Charles Gosling (Mayor of the City of Hamilton),  Ed Christopher (Town Crier), Major Cathy Simms (Divisional Commander),  Lt. Lester Ward (Executive Director Community Services), Beverly Daniels, Captain Dennis Maybury (Corps Officer Cedar Hill), Lt. Almeta Ward (Corps Officer St. George’s and Divisional Women’s Ministries) 

The Northlands School Choir, a Salvation Army Band Ensemble entertained the crowd in song and festive music.

Contributions to the Christmas Red Kettle Campaign allows The Salvation Army to provide practical assistance for all who need it, not just at Christmas, but throughout the year. This includes meals, food banks, housing support, substance-use recovery, summer camps and care for women and children fleeing domestic violence. Every donation to any of the kettle locations across the island remains in Bermuda, to support local needs. (Photos courtesy of the Royal Gazette)
