Who We Are

Echelon's Mission:

  • Mobilizing the next generation of The Salvation Army through service, ministry, fellowship, networking, and fundraising.
  • Echelon was founded in 2010 in Dallas, TX. Echelon Peoria, the fourth Echelon chapter, was founded in 2014. 

Echelon Peoria seeks to:

  • Increase awareness and broaden the image of how The Salvation Army impacts communities and their families.
  • Provide opportunities and experiences to create young leaders that will carry the shield of The Salvation Army to the future.

In Echelon Peoria's lifetime, we have:

  • Logged over 1,500 volunteer hours through Echelon and Salvation Army programs and events
  • Raised over $130,000 (net) through unique fundraising events
  • Donated over $40,000 to the Heartland Division's annual Tree of Lights (Christmas) campaign
  • Donated to The Salvation Army's music program at Sterling Middle School and the Army's Family Services program
  • Touched thousands of lives through service and volunteering

We invite you to follow us on social media and come to our next event to meet us!
