The Royal Order Of Red Suspenders (RORS) 
A ministry of Salem Alliance Church that provides seasoned, cut, split firewood delivered for free to those in need. RORS accepts donations of wood from the community.  When excess wood stores allow, RORS sells firewood with the proceeds going to fund the ministry.

    • Need Firewood: As of April 1, 2018, RORS is closed for the season.  We will begin receiving requests for firewood from those in need for heating their homes again on October 1, 2018.  During this off-season, we do not receive requests on our phone line, or via the email button below.  Requests made during off-season are not answered.  Thank you!

    • Donate Wood to RORS:   RORS may be able to accept smaller (1-2 trees) donations of wood.  We only accept donations of trees that are already down, and only these types: Douglas fir, oak, alder, ash, and maple.  When emailing us (click the button below) please provide your name, phone number, physical address where the wood is located, and email address if you have one.  Please also let us know the approximate amount, type of wood, and how accessible it is to pick up with a truck (front yard, back yard, behind a fence, etc..) Thank you!  

      Purchase Firewood:  As of 4/1/18, we may have firewood to sell.  Wood is fir, oak, or maple, cut into standard firewood lengths, split, and seasoned.  It is sold at reasonable prices and the proceeds are used to take care of supply and equipment needs to keep the ministry functioning.  If you would like to purchase some firewood, please click the button below and complete the form, which will be emailed to someone in our ministry, who will contact you.   

Furniture Bank
Our Furniture Bank is on hiatus as we gather new volunteers and re-build this ministry.  We hope to be operational again in May of 2018.  During this hiatus, we are not maintaining the phone message line listed below. 

We are however, accepting volunteer help from those who have completed an SAC Volunteer Application and Criminal Background Check.  You can inquire about becoming a volunteer here: http://www.salemalliance.org/serve/community-impact/ministries/furniture-bank

You may email Melanie at mpfaff@salemalliance.org if you have questions. 

Furniture Bank delivers gently used household items to individuals and families who are making a "fresh start" in life and need some help putting a home together.

  • Did you just move into a place and are in need of some basic household items and/or furniture to get started?
  • Are these items ones that you can't afford to purchase on your own?

Call 503.581.2129 x241 and leave a message for our volunteer team that will contact you to see if there is a way we can come alongside you in your time of need.

Feed Salem
Feed Salem is a food bank ministry of Salem Alliance Church offering food boxes in the name of Jesus Christ.

Feed Salem began as a city-wide project initiated by 38 churches in the Salem/Keizer area with the purpose of feeding the hungry and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Salem Alliance Church has continued that annual effort to collect and distribute food boxes to area schools and families throughout the city on the third Saturday of each month, from December - May, as long as food supplies last.

When Is It? 

  • 3rd Saturday of the month, from Dec - while food supplies last (usually April or May)
  • Open 10:00 am - Noon for food box distribution
  • There will be no distributions from June-November as we gather food from our community.
