A Message from Our Divisional Leaders


The Salvation Army Soup Kitchen in Saipan serves thousands of people hot meals daily from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Aloha to our Salvation Army ‘Ohana,

This week Saipan residents affected by Typhoon Soudelor are receiving relief such as water, food, and clothing. Our Soup Kitchen in Chalan Kanoa village has served more than 4,100 meals this week and has received assistance from Bank of Hawaii, Foremost Group, Pacific Trading, Hana Tour, and government officials. Please continue to lift Envoy Wayne and Annie Gillespie and our volunteers who are providing support to those affected in prayer.

Food and water are still needed to provide meals. If you would like to give to help us stock our Soup Kitchen and continue to serve hot meals daily in Saipan, donate here.


We are also monitoring twin typhoons approaching Saipan and Tinian. Both islands are on typhoon watch. We will post updates as they become available.


Our Family Treatment Services and the PATH Clinic ensures mothers or pregnant women are healthy and thriving.

Congratulations are also in order to Erika Warner, Residential Clinical Supervisor, and our staff at the Family Treatment Services who, along with the Waikiki Health PATH Clinic, will be receiving a prestigious Community Partnership Award from Mutual of America Foundation. This national award recognizes programs that build a cohesive community that serves as a model for collaborating with others for the greater good. The Salvation Army’s collaboration with the PATH Clinic assists pregnant and parenting women with addition challenges and can certainly be replicated by other programs across the country.


Divisional Leader Major John Chamness and Honolulu Advisory Board member Jeff Emerson 

This week, we also want to welcome Jeff Emerson to our Honolulu Advisory Board. Jeff is a local, small business owner with a huge heart for making a difference in the community. We are excited for him to be a part of our mission of Doing The Most Good in the Hawaiian and Pacific Islands!

Mahalo and God bless,

  1. Aloha I cannot find where I sign up to be a volunteer for the S.Army & Jackie Reyes partner Thanksgiving dinner on 11/26/15. I have done this for 5 years since I moved here to Kona. Why can’t I find the sign up page. Please HELP. Paul and Anna, Jessie want me to be part of this wonderful community event.

  2. Aloha! You may contact our Kona Corps Officers Lieutenants Richard and Joanna Wang at 808.326.2330 for volunteer opportunities.
