I grew up living right next to the Salvation Army in Princeton, Indiana. I felt like I had a pretty good idea of the things they could do for the community, mostly because we had to utilize those services.

Meals and More

I clearly remember my mom signing up for a basket of food during the holidays. Even back the the need was so great that you had o get your name in early. I remember her also requesting assistance with our electric or heat bills. Now the Princeton Salvation Army has expanded, and my childhood house is their parking lot.


I had to mention the Princeton connection since Alex Rahman, the Director of Community Engagement The Salvation Army of Evansville mentioned that he knew of me from Princeton.

What is a Salvation Army Tip Tap?

When I hear 'TipTap' I think about a fun dance. I suppose dancing will be in order when I tell you what this means for the Salvation Army. We're used to seeing the bell ringers at the red kettles, but we can only really donate what cash we might happen to have on us. But now with the Tip Tap system, you can donate any amount you would like with your credit or debit card. As long as the green light is on, the kettle is ready to Tip Tap.


Now with even more exciting news! A generous donor is MATCHING all donations made through the new Tip Tap system up to $5,000!!!

There are 20 Tip Taps at local Schnucks and Walmart locations from now until Christmas Eve.
