The Salvation Army - New Jersey Division

Color Volunteer Shield

Emergency Disaster Services (or EDS) volunteers join The Salvation Army in providing physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort and support wherever and whenever disaster strikes.

As an EDS volunteer, you may help serve food from canteens, speak with grieving victims, or perform other duties to assist in disaster recovery and clean-up efforts. EDS volunteers are the kind faces and helping hands that support police, firefighters and other first responders while assisting families and communities to recover from floods, fires, and other tragedies.

EDS volunteers provide invaluable services to people during times of critical need. As an EDS volunteer, your assistance will only be needed during times of emergency. Volunteers must have their own transportation.
