For several years now, Salem has partnered with Salvation Army Santa Ana and Charity On Wheels to provide the homeless and needy in our community with a little extra love during the holiday season.


In one day, we provide a delicious, hot turkey dinner, complete with pumpkin pie and beverages.  We give away free sleeping bags, personal necessity bags, and gently used jackets to those in need.


Those who come are entertained by various local performing groups.
