The Salvation Army is leading the #Fight for Good.
We’re on the front lines every day
serving our Friends in need.
We’re helping hard-working but struggling families across this metro Detroit put food on their tables, pay their rent and keep their heat on. We’re supporting thousands of children who live in poverty in our own neighborhoods.
You give us our weapons for this fight – hope, love, and compassion. With you in our Army, we keep families in their homes and kids off the streets. We help people stay sober. And we bring hope to those with none.
While people battle hunger, we fight. While families cry over violence in their neighborhoods, we fight.
While women and men are trafficked, we fight. While people struggle against addiction and homelessness, we fight.
Join Us By Volunteering to Serve our Community. The Fight is Now.
The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve. Volunteers are the difference between a nearly empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night. Volunteer bell ringers who are able to give of their time during the holidays help The Salvation Army's provide for our friends in need all year long. To volunteer as a bell ringer, visit registertoring.com. Enter your zip code and then select a location and shift. If you want to participate with a radio station promotion, connect your shift with one of the following promotions: Ring for Bling, Ring with WRIF, Battle of the 'Burbs East, Battle of the 'Burbs West, or Battle of the 'Burbs Downriver.
Volunteers for the toy shop get the amazing opportunity to become the personal shopper for parents who come to pick out Christmas presents for their children. Toy shop volunteers give hope as they guide shoppers and take part in imagining Christmas morning for countless families who rely on The Salvation Army during the holidays. Volunteers will also help set up, tear down, and restock the toy shop. Use the button below to find your local Corps Community Center for more information on volunteering for the toy shop.
Volunteers for the food pantry have the privilege of helping our friends in need have a special Christmas meal and enough food for their families during the holiday season, when budgets come under extra strain. As a volunteer, you will be setting up the food pantry, cleaning the kitchen, and helping load groceries into cars for anyone who needs assistance.
