Volunteer with The Salvation Army

“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve,
you only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.”
–Martin Luther King, Jr.

From its inception, The Salvation Army has relied heavily on volunteers. 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.

Almost 3.3 million people of all ages volunteered their time, talents, and resources to assist The Salvation Army’s work. Our volunteers are critical partners in helping us fulfill our promise to America of “Doing the Most Good.”

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 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.
