For over 60 years, The Salvation Army has delivered Christmas meals to house bound seniors and disabled adults. We are serving 1000 MORE people this year. That means we need an extra 50 routes filled compared to 2019.
COVID-19 has impacted everyone, and the elderly and housebound adults in our community have been impacted more than most as they experience even more isolation this year. The special touch of a fresh holiday meal and a warm greeting from our volunteers will be extra special this Christmas!
We especially need volunteers to deliver meals. ONLY DRIVERS need to register, but every vehicle MUST have at least ONE PASSENGER for safety and practical support with deliveries. Most shifts will take between 2-3 hours.
Delivery shift times are:
To ensure the safety of our volunteers and clients, we have implemented a number of changes to our program including pre-assigning delivery routes, drive-up check-in/meal pick up, and masks/social distancing required for all volunteers. (Full details appear in the Volunteer Packet linked in the registration confirmation email when you register through The Salvation Army volunteer website.)

Thank you for sharing your Christmas morning with us! We cannot do this without you and we appreciate your generosity of time.
The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. its mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human need in His name without discrimination.
The Salvation Army was established in London in 1865, and since 1883 has been serving the San Francisco Bay Area, offering practical support, spiritual comfort and a critical safety net to people in need. The safety net is funded in part by donations from the Red Kettle Campaign which started in San Francisco in 1891. Nearly 600,000 San Franciscans receive assistance from the Army annually through a range of social services; clothing and shelter for the homeless, food for the hungry, opportunities for underprivileged children, alcohol rehabilitation, transitional housing, nutritional and housing support for seniors and relief for disaster survivors. For every dollar donated to The Salvation Army, 82 cents is used to support those services in the 16 facilities throughout San Francisco and South San Francisco communities.
