This is Derek Miller, Speaking on Business. The Salvation Army in Salt Lake City has been supporting those in need in our community since 1865. Thousands of Utahns receive assistance each year through a broad array of social services. Corps Officer Lt. Kate Combs tells us more.


The overall mission of The Salvation Army is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in His name without discrimination.

Here in Salt Lake Corps, we do this through a number of different services, including: a client choice food pantry, material assistance, such as hygiene products, coats and, blankets, daily hot meal program; utility assistance, a summer day camp, and regular church activities.

Many people are familiar with the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle during the Christmas Season and we are grateful for those monetary donations we receive, as they help fund our programs year-round. Due to inflation and the rising costs of food & utilities, requests for our services are at an all-time high.

In Utah, The Salvation Army has locations in Salt Lake City, Ogden and St George as well as various service centers throughout the state. To learn more, visit
