Because volunteers give generously of their time, talent and energy on behalf of the disadvantaged, The Salvation Army is able to help thousands of Brown County families, children, individuals and seniors each year. We rely on volunteers to help us every day, from serving a hot lunch Monday through Friday, to the special gift of time during the busy holiday season when we need nearly 10,000 hours of support by bell ringers alone.
Volunteers come to The Salvation Army as individuals, families or community organizations. Volunteer opportunities can be either short or long-term commitments. Much of the volunteer work is seasonal, helping with the many programs of The Salvation Army at Christmastime including toy, coat, and food distribution and bell-ringing.
Services of The Salvation Army continue year-round because we are committed to Doing the Most Good for those in need. Ongoing volunteer opportunities include working with young people at The Salvation Army Corps Community Center, helping with feeding programs for people of all ages, lending a hand in The Salvation Army’s food pantry, staffing The Salvation Army Thrift Store, assisting in our Senior Program or being an on-call driver for various needs as they arise.
The Salvation Army’s volunteer coordinator, works with groups and individuals to match their interests and needs with those of The Salvation Army. Our prayer is that our volunteers experience joy and satisfaction as they continue to share their resources with others. If you are seeking a meaningful way to serve others, The Salvation Army would love to have you aboard.
Whether you have two hours available or 50 - we have an opportunity for you to help others.
