The Salvation Army

Since 2009, Royal Park Hotel has partnered with The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit to bring Christmas joy to visitors. We are excited to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this community partnership, which has raised more than $250,000 to help northern Oakland County residents in need. Once again this year, The David W. Elliott Memorial Foundation is generously matching $5,000 to help those in need in our area.

Some of the ways you can help support this year include:

  • Donating to one of the iconic Salvation Army red kettles
  • Dining in PARK 600! $1 from each dessert purchased will be donated to The Salvation Army.
  • Sponsoring a gingerbread ornament for a $10 or $25 donation
