In honor of National Volunteer Week, we’re letting our volunteers know just how awesome they are. Across the country Salvation Army centers are sharing the love in all sorts of ways, including Volunteer Appreciation parties, award events, personal messages, and fun outings.

Here are just a few ways The Salvation Army is saying, “Thank You!” to our partners in service:

In Nashville, TN The Salvation Army is making personal phone calls to all of their volunteers and thank them “from the bottom of their hearts”  for their gift of time. Read more here.

Volunteers from Louisville, KY will be treated to a baseball game and great ballpark food at Slugger Field.

In Georgia, The Salvation Army is attending a recognition event for the airmen of Robins Air Base to honor their many hours of community service. The airmen give many hours during the Christmas season helping The Salvation Army sort toys, pack and distribute food boxes, distribute gifts, and organize the warehouse.

The Salvation Army Atlanta is recognizing their outstanding corporate volunteer partner UPS on their blog.  According to their site, “since 1998, UPS employees have volunteered for The Salvation Army Metro Atlanta Area Command through hands-on, community based services that have made an everlasting difference.” Read the article here.

More than 100 Salvation Army volunteers in Tulsa have been selected for the prestigious Presidential Award. To express gratitude for their work, the directors of our Boys & Girls clubs and the Center of Hope Homeless shelter are hosting a Volunteer Appreciation Breakfast in May and hand delivering their invitations this week.

Thank you to all of our volunteers for the countless ways you are making a difference in lives everyday!
