The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination. We provide a wide array of services across Central New York. We provide everything from soup kitchens to homeless shelters for teens, pregnant women and families as well as after school programs, summer day camps and overnight camp opportunities. The Salvation Army has been in these communities for over 100 years and continues to serve as many people as possible.

Our Charity Bib Mission
What our charity will do with the donations raised through the Boilermaker Charity Bib Program:
Monies raised will be split between the Utica G.Y.M Project and The Syracuse Barnabas Center.
The G.Y.M. Program offers a wide range of activities that promote the physical, emotional, intellectual, and social growth of children after school and during the summer. Youth are taught positive character traits and life skills through Salvation Army programs & materials that are age and gender specific. TSA provides nutritionally balanced meals to the children after school. Additional fun, physical activities, workshops and guest speakers solidify values presented through the G.Y.M. program. TSA also communicates with parents and teachers to ensure homework completion and necessary additional help. Additional development of skills and exploration of interests take place during an eight-week summer enrichment program comprised of indoor and outdoor activities, field trips and a finale musical production performed for community and family members.
Barnabas Center provides advocacy, assistance and role models for high-risk youth. Program options include case management services, housing placement, living skills classes, employment assistance, on-the-job training experience, street outreach, violence prevention, basic emergency needs, and more. Barnabas Center serves more than 300 young people each year. Many have adopted Barnabas Center as their second home or, in some cases, their only home. The primary focus of Barnabas Center is to provide a safe, supportive site where high-risk youth can develop their sense of empowerment and given an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to transition from childhood to young adult.
