The Salvation Army - Niles


Schools are out and the heat is here!  

We currently need volunteers in our kitchen to prepare, serve and clean-up for our 'Lunch Bunch' program, which serves lunches Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 11:30 am - 12:30 pm.  Volunteers would normally work from 9:00 am to 1:00pm.  We are looking for people to work even just one day a week, or even 1 day a month.

We are also looking for volunteers to work in our food pantry to sort donations and  pack pantry bags for distribution.  The pantry is open Monday, and  Friday, 1 pm - 3 pm and Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am to 11 am and 1 pm - 3:00 pm.  We have many varied times and days available for volunteers and normally work 2 to 3 hours a day.  Again, 1 day a week or even a month will help us continue to serve those in need in our community. 

Some upcoming programs which we will need volunteers is our 'Back to School Backpack' program,  and of course our Christmas Assistance and Red Kettle Campaign.

Give Tim, our Office Manager a call - 269.684.2660
