The bell ringing season starts each November and runs through Christmas Eve. Volunteers are the difference between a nearly empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night. Volunteer bell ringers who are able to give of their time during the holidays help The Salvation Army's provide for our friends in need all year long. To volunteer as a bell ringer, visit registertoring.com.
Volunteers for the toy shop get the amazing opportunity to become the personal shopper for parents who come to pick out Christmas presents for their children. Toy shop volunteers give hope as they guide shoppers and take part in imagining Christmas morning for countless families who rely on The Salvation Army during the holidays. Volunteers will also help set up, tear down, and restock the toy shop. Use the button below to find your local Corps Community Center for more information on volunteering for the toy shop.
Volunteers for the food pantry have the privilege of helping our friends in need have a special Christmas meal and enough food for their families during the holiday season, when budgets come under extra strain. As a volunteer, you will be setting up the food pantry, cleaning the kitchen, and helping load groceries into cars for anyone who needs assistance. Use the button below to find your local Corps Community Center for more information on volunteering for the food pantry.
