Those who can DO. Those who can do more VOLUNTEER

Without volunteers, our work is impossible. We work groups and individuals to make a big difference in a few hours. Call Mike at 248-334-2407 x101.

Without volunteers, our work would be impossible.  From Chef Paul who donates time to oversee our Food Services to a homeschool group who puts food on pantry shelves, we rely on our volunteers for important, routine tasks.  From Driving to Sorting to Answering Phones, we could use your help this season.  

Most importantly at this time of year, we invite you to give your time to our fundraising effort at the Red Kettles.  Volunteer to ring a bell at one of our kettle locations by visiting registertoring.com.  Locations manned by volunteers always bring in the most money!

To take the next step on any of these opportunities, contact Mike_Lewis@usc.salvationarmy.org.
