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 year 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 strikes.

 

Group Opportunities

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.

Now you can donate at our kettles with Apple Pay and Google Pay.

 
 
How We Meet Local Needs
 
 

Assess the Need

FIRST, we assess the needs of each community in which we serve. We work to understand the obstacles, hardships, and challenges native to the area's particular population.

Build the Programs

NEXT, we build local programs designed to offer immediate relief, short-term care and long-term growth in the areas that will best benefit the community.

Invest in the community

THEN, we offer the local programs to the local community working to continually optimize their efficacy via spiritual, physical and emotional service.

Why The Salvation Army?

Breadth of Service

From immediate relief to short-term help, to long-term, sustainable change, we are dedicated to serving the physical, mental and spiritual needs of the poor, the lonely, and the lost.

Trust

With 82 cents of every dollar dedicated to directly supporting the needs of the community in which it was received, The Salvation Army is committed to stewarding every donation with integrity.

Longevity

Since 1891, we have been working to provide sustainable solutions for the most vulnerable. We stay not just until the job is done, but long afterward, to ensure that the healing continues.
