Partners in Doing the Most Good

The Salvation Army has changed lives and given hope to countless people throughout the nation. But it never does it alone.

Because of COVID-19 and the Shelter in place order our need for volunteers is rapidly changing. We ARE still utilizing volunteers for a number of things. If you would like to volunteer please email or call Darlene Howard for the most up to date volunteer opportunities and to be placed on a "when in need, I can help" list. Darlene.Howard@usc.salvationarmy.org 517-546-4750 ext 347

Thank you so much for offering your valuable resource of time, especially during our current crisis. 

Volunteers matter and make a DIFFERENCE in what we do at The Salvation Army of Livingston County.

  • They share the most precious of resources, their time and talents
  • They help make life better for those who are in need 
  • Fruits of their labor make a tangible impact 
  • Their act of kindness and caring is what helps us make the difference in the lives of those we serve 

We cannot do what we do without Volunteers.

Whether you are a long time volunteer or recently joined our team, it's important  to know that  WHAT YOU DO MAKES THIS DIFFERENCE We truly value and appreciates each and every volunteer who gives back by supporting The Salvation Army and our mission

Emergency Disaster Services
The Salvation Army is one of the nation's largest federally recognized Emergency Disaster Services agencies. However all Salvation Army disaster response services are managed locally.  We recognize the critical importance of being prepared for disasters which means maintaining internal infrastructure and disaster training.  Disaster responses varies from place to place depending on the situation.  Our volunteers are trained to assist with food services, emergency shelter, cleanup, emergency communication, as well as spiritual and emotional care.  In  the case of a long-term disaster, volunteers will also learn restoration and rebuilding, disaster social services, and In-kind management. To be part of the Emergency Disaster Team contact Lt.Robert Leach or Lt Stephanie Leach

Office Help

The Salvation Army periodically has a need for individuals to help with administration type tasks: stuffing envelopes, making phone calls, stocking the pantry. If helping around the office is your cup of tea, let us know, we would love to put you on the list!                           Interested volunteers can contact, Darlene Howard for further details.

We will need volunteers to distribute fliers to shoppers as they enter the store asking them to donate school supplies, etc.  We will also need volunteers to accept these donations as shoppers exit the store, volunteers to ring the bell at the kettles, and volunteers to even dress in costumes to amuse the children.  There are several TWO-HOUR shifts and other opportunities available where WE NEED HELP.  Sign Up HERE TODAY!  

Summer Lunch Bunch 

During the summer many families struggle with providing the extra meal the children had been receiving from the school. Summer Lunch Bunch is a meal program that helps fill the gap. June 15th  through July 31st The Salvation Army hosts meal sites through out the county providing a nutritious served meal as well as a pantry box of food to take home. Due to the current pandemic, at this time we are allowing returning volunteers only. If you have volunteered for the program since 2017, have not been contacted and wish to volunteer please contact Darlene Howard
