The Salvation Army continues to be blessed by the efforts of our Volunteers. See below for details as to how to apply to volunteer.
We are looking for a variety of individuals willing to volunteer. This includes High School Students looking to get their required 40 hours of volunteering, individuals required to preform Court Mandated Community Services hours, and individuals looking for an opportunity to give back to the community.
We are currently seeking several volunteers who could weekly support our Thrift Store operations. This would involve the receiving, sortation and pricing of donation. Volunteers must be able to lift bags of clothing and carry them a short distance.
We currently have opening for Wednesday and Thursday. A shift between 2-4 would be appreciated.
