T he Salvation Army in Waukesha-- founded in 1894 and serving Waukesha County exclusively, works every day to make life better for countless people in our communities. It takes many small charitable gifts from many people across the county to do so.

It also takes larger charitable gifts, business and corporate underwriting, enthusiastic participation in our special events, and, everyone spreading the word. Our work is fun, rewarding, sometimes heartbreaking, but ALWAYS valuable and important.
