We could not do what we do without the wonderful individuals and groups of people who come together and donate their time to us.
In 2019, The Salvation Army Volunteer Team was made up of around 6000 volunteers who have provided almost 27,000 hours of service.
Our volunteers participate in a wide range of things from serving meals in the kitchen, to sorting donations at our Thrift Store, and to filling Christmas food baskets!
