Volunteering with the Salvation army

From its inception,  The Salvation Army has relied heavily on volunteers who support its programs.  Often referred to as “The Army behind The Army,” volunteers play a crucial role in The Salvation Army’s ability to provide quality social services for the entire community.  Volunteers are valuable assets in The Salvation Army’s efforts to meet the changing needs of our communities.

One - time Opportunities

Our one-time opportunities are perfect for those who want a quick and easy way to make a difference.  These include activities like serving a meal any day of the week, or ringing a bell during the holidays. 

Ongoing Opportunities

ongoing opportunities are designed for those who want to get involved on a regular basis.  We’ll know you by your first name, and you’ll get to know the people in our programs.  These include activities like working with youth, using your professional skills or serving after a disaster.


We can accommodate your group’s desire to do something good together – whether family, friends, coworkers, civic or church groups.  Group volunteer activities are typically project-based or part of a larger event.
