Here at The Salvation Army, we truly value our volunteers and realize they are a gift from God. Our volunteers enable us to function effectively and efficiently in everything we do from feeding the homeless a hot meal to tutoring students in our after-school program, attending to disasters as they strike to manning an Angel Tree booth during Christmas.

We know that volunteers choose to donate their time and talents to us and that does not go unnoticed or unappreciated. We are here to encourage our volunteers and provide them with the tools and training they need and support them at all times.

If you're considering volunteering with us, we'd love to hear from you and get you involved! Check out our volunteer opportunities below and see what interests you! We hope to see you soon!
