The Salvation Army, an international movement, is an evangelical part of the universal Christian Church. It's message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is motivated by the love of God. Its mision is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in His name without discrimination.
Since the very beginning, volunteers have stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Salvation Army officers to provide help for the poor and downtrodden and those affected by natural disasters. In fact, the name "The Salvation Army" came about in 1878 when William Booth adapted it from a phrase he read in a report that described the organization as a "volunteer army."
There are opportunities to help all throughout the year. Individuals and groups are needed to help with a variety of projects, including: serving meals to homeless individuals, helping at a food pantry, serving as a coach for youth sports teams, helping low-income children with homework after school, securing donations of school supplies for underprivileged children and many more. (Specific volunteer roles will vary from one Salvation Army center to another.)
The Salvation Army is truly an army of volunteers. Our volunteers are the lifeblood of our ministry. The Salvation Army sincerely appreciates and welcomes all volunteers.
