Why volunteer? It’s good for you! Volunteering reduces stress and makes you healthier. It saves resources so more dollars can be allocated to those we serve. It allows you to gain professional experience. It brings people together. It promotes personal growth and self esteem. It strengthens our community.
Volunteering allows people to give back and make a difference!
The Salvation Army has many year-round and seasonal volunteer opportunities to help serve those in need. We are in need of bilingual volunteers.

Safe drivers with clean driving record are needed for various projects throughout the year. Sometimes CDL licensed drivers are needed as well. Passenger endorsement is a definite need. Projects include driving buses for camp, special events and church events – driving box trucks for donation collections and food drives.
Volunteers can help in many ways at our thrift stores: putting out merchandise, sorting clothes, tagging merchandise, keeping the stores clean and neat, and so much more. With three locations, there is a Family Store not far from you!
