When choosing an organization to volunteer for, we encourage you to research your options. What is their mission? Where are they located? What will you be doing? How are they making a difference?
Here at The Salvation Army, our mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and meet human needs in his name without discrimination. With locations across the United States and around the world, it is easy to find a corps near you. Volunteers participate in a range of activities, including passing out food to the less fortunate, collecting donations, children's youth camps and interacting with senior citizens.
The Salvation Army is constantly striving to spread the word of Jesus Christ while improving and supporting the lives of those in need.
President Obama advocated for all Americans to volunteer their
skills to our nation in his "Call to Service" speech. The Salvation Army is a
great way to meet this call. By volunteering with us, you are not only serving
our nation, but also reaching out to your community and those in most need. More
information can be found about President Obama's national challenge here.
