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 us at 218-741-1889 or sign up online, when available. It’s that simple.

  • Help make and serve food for free weeday dinner program
  • Fill boxes and stock product for food shelf

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. Shifts are two hours long, available Monday through Saturday. Sign up online for a bell ringing shift.

Here are some additional ways to help:

  • Be a Christmas “Elf” and help parents shop for toys
  • Help accept donations, set up and sort toys for our Gingerbread House toy program
  • Help serve our Thanksgiving or Christmas meals
  • Sponsor or pack food boxes for a family in need
  • Host a winter apparel drive

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