Partners in Doing the Most Good

The Salvation Army has changed lives and given hope to countless people in Evansville, but there are still so many that need help

Volunteer

Why should I volunteer?

You can make a difference, you can become a volunteer.
“The look on their faces. You see the appreciation and the hope in their eyes when you lend them a hand and help them up. It makes my heart melt and reminds me that I can give back in so many simple ways.” This was the response of one of our volunteers when asked, “Why do you volunteer?”

So, what’s motivating you to give back and help us in Doing the Most Good? No matter what is it, chances are we have an opportunity for you. From helping a child receive a warm winter coat, to assisting a family as they shop for toys for their kids at Christmas to ringing a bell, to helping serve a meal to someone who is hungry – the possibilities are endless.

Please note, that if any opportunities are full, or unavailable, feel free to give us a call at 812-202-5133. Thank you!

Seasonal Opportunities

 

Stuff the Bus

Join us in serving those in need! 

Going back to school can look very different from one person to the next. The truth is that there are many who worry about having everything they need for their child. For some it's a battle they face every year...for others, this may be a battle they will be facing for the first time this year... We never want anyone to feel like they are alone in this battle.

For years The Salvation Army and Walmart have partnered to raise school supplies for those in need as part of "Stuff The Bus"... how we accomplished this effort has looked very different from year to year...From school supplies being purchased and volunteers stuffing backpacks...to focusing on area high schools and partnering with counselors for under-served schools...to our latest partnership with EVSC Foundation Teacher Locker helping equip teachers and classrooms throughout the year... to this year's 3-way approach to serving EVSC, Warrick County School Corp, and direct assistance to the Cedar Hall elementary neighborhood.

Donation boxes will be available at all local Walmart supercenters to collect on July 28th and 29th 2023 from 10 AM until 6 PM

Additional collection boxes will be available at other participating business and agencies including the following:

It's no secret to any of us that people can struggle in lots of different ways. The Salvation Army is dedicated to meeting SO many needs of those struggling in the community. I am sure that you all are familiar with The Salvation Army’s red kettles and bell ringers during the Holiday season. For most of us, it just enhances that “feels like Christmas feeling” when we are out and about shopping over the Holiday’s. The bell ringing does more than just signal it’s “the most wonderful time of the year”. The donations raised from the red kettle campaign provide daily meals, utility resources, youth programs and Christmas toys and food boxes for families in need. The ringing of the bell represents hope. Would you consider “ringing hope” into your community this Holiday season?
