Thank you for your interest in volunteering with The Salvation Army of Milwaukee County.

Regular emails are sent announcing new opportunities and to promote our volunteer needs. 

Please be aware that some activities such as working with the Food Pantry and Feed the Kids program. These programs involve our vulnerable population, therefore, will require a background check and Safe From Harm training prior to volunteering.

Feed the Kids program served 65,087 meals over the 10-week program.

Coats for Kids served 4,154 people requesting coats and 4,924 coats have been given out thru 2022.  

Volunteers are needed for our Coat Sorting activity starting February 6-10 and 13-14, 2023, from 9-12 PM.  This activity takes place at 5880 N 60 Street, Milwaukee, WI. 

Please help us to do it again by being a blessing to others and helping to meet the needs within our communities!
