United Airlines Charity Miles Program
Mileage Plus Miles
There is now another way to give to The Salvation Army. Through United Airlines Charity Miles Program, Mileage Plus members can donate accrued miles enabling The Salvation Army to move personnel quickly in time of disaster, provide travel for those in need of emergency medical care outside of their area, and reduce administrative costs by providing travel for staff.
In partnership since 1999, these invaluable contributions provided travel for Salvation Army replacement personnel to Ground Zero following the 9/11 attacks.
Through these donations, The Salvation Army granted a dying man's wish to return with his wife to their home country, India, after living in the States for over 60 years.
Through these donations, a needy family was reunited with a repentant father dying of cancer.
Through these donations, an eleven year old girl diagnosed with RSDS (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome), which left her with intense pain and unable to walk, received the specialized treatment she needed.
There are many ways to change a life. We hope that this provides yet another way The Salvation Army can partner with you to do just that.
