"Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another."
— Erma Bombeck
From its inception The Salvation Army has relied heavily on volunteers who support its programs. Often referred to as "the army behind The Army," volunteers play a crucial role in The Salvation Army's ability to provide quality social services for the entire community.
Today, approximately one-and-a-half million volunteers throughout the United States dramatically extend The Salvation Army's ability to serve the needy.
Through the skills and experience volunteers bring to The Army, they make significant contributions to society by positively impacting the lives of those they assist. Salvation Army volunteers change lives, uplift families and support communities throughout our nation everyday.
