Be A Shield. Be A Volunteer.

Camp KeystoneYou can be a shield against hunger, homelessness and despair by volunteering to support The Salvation Army. There are opportunities to help throughout the year, and we are dedicated to finding a good match between a volunteer's time and talents, and our opportunities for service. We strive to provide volunteers with a rewarding and satisfying experience.

The Salvation Army offers volunteer opportunities for individuals and for groups. Independent volunteering is a great way to meet new people while helping others, and group projects serve as effective team-building activities for groups. We encourage the entire family to volunteer. Students can earn Community Service hours for school by volunteering for The Salvation Army.  


Regular volunteer activities include;

  • Serving meals to the hungry
  • Food pantry assistance
  • Data entry
  • Interior painting projects
  • Light landscaping
  • Filing and clerical activities
  • Professionals can volunteer to teach life skills, resume building, or computer training classes
  • Helping with check-in at the emergency shelter
  • Reading to or tutoring children in our programs
  • Washing towels and sheets for our shelter program
  • Nursing home visitations
  • Thanksgiving and holiday food distribution
  • Ringing bells during the holidays
  • Distributing Angel Tree gifts to families
  • And much, more more
