Volunteer Opportunities at The Salvation Army Worship and Service Centers

What can I do at my local
Worship and Service Center?

Worship and Service Centers are a hub of activity and encompass both the church and social service components of The Salvation Army. Each location presents unique opportunities:

  • After School Program/Tutoring:Volunteers interact with school-age children by helping with homework, serving meals, and participating in fun activities after school.
  • Summer Day Camps: Volunteers assist staff with camp activities for children.
  • Christmas Season: Be a bell ringer at a local Red Kettle Stand. MORE ABOUT BELL RINGING
  • Food Pantry: Help with stocking a pantry or distributing food.
  • Special Projects: Volunteers may be needed periodically for small projects or fundraisers at our Worship and Service Centers.
  • Community Care Ministries: Visit shut-ins in hospitals and nursing homes.
  • Senior Visits

What can I do at with my local Service Unit?

Smaller communities that cannot financially support a large-scale Worship and Service Center provide for needy families through Salvation Army Service Units. Staffed entirely by volunteers, help is needed for:

  • Serving families: Volunteers are needed to field phone calls, help with client intake assessments and distribute assistance.
  • Fundraising: Service Units raise critical operating dollars through Red Kettle Campaigns, golf outings, and other special events.
