National Volunteer Week

In 2010, thousands of volunteers helped The Salvation Army and Numana pack more than 10 million meals for the people of Haiti.

It’s National Volunteer Week, a time for us to recommit ourselves to serving others and celebrate those who generously give back!

Last year, 3,411,613 volunteers assisted The Salvation Army by working in our food programs, serving as Red Kettle bell ringers, assisting at-risk youth, rebuilding disaster sites, and more. Our volunteers are critical partners in helping us fulfill our promise to America of “Doing the Most Good.”

As President Obama stated in his presidential proclamation, “…These everyday heroes make a real and lasting impact on the lives of millions of women and men across the globe.”

We completely agree!

If you would like to get involved with a Salvation Army near you, search for opportunities via www.volunteermatch.org using the keyword “Salvation Army.” Many of our local units post opportunities on this website, and we’d love to have you join us.

This week we will share on our blog how volunteers are getting involved with The Salvation Army across the US, as well as what we’re doing to express our sincere appreciation for their support, so check back for updates.
