Good Samaritan, Volunteer, Philanthropist, Do-Gooder, Altruist, Humanitarian – whatever you call it, we want to know how YOU’RE “Doing the Most Good” in your community!

In celebration of National Salvation Army Week (which is May 14-20, if you haven’t marked your calendars yet ;) ), we want to see and hear how you’re giving back to others in need.

Starting today, send us a photo or video of yourself volunteering and doing the most good along with the details: who, what, where, why, when! And you just might be featured on our social media pages during National Salvation Army Week!

What does ‘Doing the Most Good’ look like?

For a few examples:

  • Donating canned goods to a food drive
  • Volunteering at a local shelter
  • Cleaning up your community
  • Spending time with an elderly person who needs a companion
  • Tutoring kids after school
  • Donating clothes or household goods to a Salvation Army Family Store
  • And anything else that benefits other members of your community!

There are two ways that you can send us your photo or video and story:

1) For Video submissions, Upload your video to Youtube and then tag it with the slogan “I Do The Most Good”.

OR

2) For Photo submissions, E-mail your photos with a brief description of your work to our Media Relations team with the subject line “I Do The Most Good” to MediaRelations@USN.SalvationArmy.org.

The Deadline for submissions is May 20…a whole month to explore volunteer opportunities and ‘Do the Most Good’!

We hope to hear from you!

  1. I think it’s great to thank God and bless others for what they are doing, but right now I’m asking myself, “Am I doing the MOST good today? Am I making the most of the time available to me? It’s written in Hebrews several times, and it’s quoting the Old Testament, “Today, if you hear His voice, do not harden your heart. . . ” So what is my ministry today? I enjoy reaching out and touching people by telephone, and people often tell me that I’m the only one who contacts them regularly. We talk about their health and what’s going on in their families. I try to offer encouragement from God’s Word, and we always pray together; sometimes I go visit them. One lady in particular often tells me that I made her day with just a phone call. My husband and I also travel most weekends and set up our goods for sale. On Sunday mornings, sometimes he gets to preach/teach, and I get to lead a few songs in worship while we’re there with other vendors who don’t get to attend church on Sundays either. It means a lot to us to be able to give in this way too. So today, WHEN I hear His voice, I’ll try not to harden my heart and be selfish, but instead, reach outward to make someone else’s day.
