Help The Salvation Army create change and provide hope all year round.

It’s the kindhearted volunteers like you who help fulfill our promise to do the most good. Whether you have a specific talent to offer or simply an hour of your time, The Salvation Army is the place to turn your passion into action.

First, find an opportunity below that piques your interest. Then call Cathy Baugh or Diane Heath at 612-789-2858 or sign up online, when available. It’s that simple.

  • Work with youth in the after school program
  • Sort donations in our food shelf
  • Train to be an emergency disaster services volunteer
  • Help set up, plant and maintain a garden to create produce for our food shelf
  • Teach children in our after school program

  • Provide janitorial services
  • Help with light maintenance

The easiest way to help from early November through Christmas Eve is to ring a bell at one of our iconic red kettles, raising the funds that change lives all year long. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries. Sign up online to bell ring.

Don't see an opportunity here for you? Call us. We'll find a place for anyone who wants to help.
