Changing the world one hour at a time.

Why should I volunteer?

 

You can make a difference for someone today.  Whether it is a single mom struggling to provide food for her family, a senior who is all alone for the holidays or a child who will benefit from tutoring, The Salvation Army can provide opportunities for you to do the most good with your time.  We are always looking for people to partner with us in our mission of meeting human needs without discrimination.

Listed below are just some of our opportunities to volunteer.  Whether you are looking for useful ways to give back during retirement years, wanting to teach a child about the value of service, or just looking to complete community service hours, we have a place for you.

We are in need of Volunteers for our Kettle locations!  This is our most flexible volunteer option!  You can choose your hours and your location!  Just show up, pick up the bell, and start spreading some Christmas cheer.  Donations raised in the Kettle support our services year round!  Volunteer as a family, group, play an instrument or wear a costume!  We love when our Kettle Volunteers get in the Holiday Spirit!  Click here to sign up for a Kettle time and location.  You can also call during office hours and we can get you signed up.
