The variety of things you can do to help those in need through The Salvation Army is almost limitless. Please see the pages on Seasonal and Year-Round volunteer opportunities to review some examples. You may also wish to visit if you would prefer to be a “bell ringer” during the Christmas season.
Some positions require volunteers to be a minimum age, but other jobs can be done by youth or families that include young children. Minors must have a signed parental permission slip to participate.
Although applications may not always be required to participate (i.e. – if you showed up and signed in to take part once in a public project), it is best (and usually required) to complete a volunteer application form before serving. Such applications are typically brief and include contacts and in-case-of-emergency information. Most positions will also require applicants to submit to a background check to ensure the safety of other volunteers and the vulnerable populations such volunteers may be serving. Once completed, the application can be returned to The Salvation Army corps or community center from which you received it.
Of course! Volunteering in groups is a great way to strengthen bonds and build morale whether you are a member of a club or a corporation. Please contact one of the Volunteer Directors below to receive more information on behalf of your group.
Safety for all volunteers, staff, and clients is important to The Salvation Army, and many measures are taken to ensure this general well-being. Salvation Army officers and staff undergo extensive training in creating safe environments and supervising volunteers. Salvation Army facilities are designed with safety in mind. Potentially hazardous situations or environments are disclosed and made known as part of position descriptions whenever possible.

A good place to start when seeking social services is to call our Lied Renaissance Center's main line: (402) 898-5900.
