Volunteering with The Salvation Army

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.

Volunteers are valuable assets in The Salvation Army's efforts to meet the changing needs of our world. Through the skills and experience, they bring to The Army, volunteers make significant contributions by positively impacting the lives of those they assist. Salvation Army volunteers change lives, uplift families and support communities throughout our nation every day.



Bell Ringers!

Red kettles and ringing bells at Christmas are what most people associate with The Salvation Army.  This ministry provides almost half of our annual income.  We ring bells Monday through Saturday from the week before Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve.

If you or a group you represent would like to “man a kettle” this Christmas season, please call now to reserve your date and time.  We would love to have groups willing to perform (singing Christmas carols, instrumental music, dancing, martial arts groups practicing forms, tai chi groups, etc.)  - Anything that gathers people to the kettle.
