  • What does The Salvation Army Torrance Corps do?

    Operating out of two locations, The Salvation Army Torrance Corps serves families and individuals residing within the communities of Torrance, Harbor City, Lomita, Wilmington, and Carson.

    It is our intention to address the unique needs of these communities by offering a variety of services. At our Stillman Sawyer Services Center in Harbor City, we focus on helping those in need through our food pantry, housing assistance, job training, and holiday assistance.

    At our location in Torrance, we offer Sunday worship services, youth activities, day camp and summer camp, and music education (Crescendo Music and Dance). Coming in 2019, we will also have a professional recording studio.

  • Wait, The Salvation Army is a church?

  • I’ve heard of The Salvation Army! Do you have a Thrift Store?

    While thrift stores, also known as Family Stores, are a major component of The Salvation Army, there is not a store at this location. Family Stores are operated under The Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Programs. All donations sold out of these stores support this successful program that help men and women combat addiction.

  • Does The Salvation Army Torrance Corps have those Red Kettles?

    Yes! The Salvation Army Red Kettle tradition originated in San Francisco back in 1891 and remains to be the central part of our local fundraising efforts. Each holiday season, The Salvation Army Torrance Corps collects donations at Red Kettle locations throughout the local area and 100% of these donations stay in our own community, providing aid to Torrance, Lomita, Harbor City, Carson, and Wilmington.

    But, you don’t have to wait until the holidays to donate. Click here for information on how you can give year-around.
