The Salvation Army - Aberdeen, SD


Volunteer with The Salvation Army in Aberdeen!   Help us bring hope to all of Aberdeen by Doing the Most Good in these key areas: (Gloves and masks are available for each volunteer.)

Thrift Store Volunteer – We have been overwhelmed by the public’s generosity and we need your help.   Do you like books? Clothes? Or do you love to find that one unique and memorable item? Help us sort, prep and tag these and many more items for the sales floor. Even just one hour a week can help make a big difference as every sale helps us to help others through our casework office. Great project for Families with teens.

Office Receptionist – Be the first smiling face and friendly voice to people stopping by or calling our front desk. Some minor office work as well.  Shifts from 3 to 4 hours throughout the week.

Food Warehouse Volunteers – The need for food assistance has increased and so have our donations. Help sort donated food onto shelves and make food boxes for singles and families to pick up later. Shifts can be a little as 2 hours per week.  Great family project.

Senior Food Box Delivery – Two person teams that help deliver food boxes to qualified individuals.  One to two hours a month.

Case Work Volunteer Assistant – Help us assist families and individuals by interviewing and aiding with food distribution.    Two-hour block times up to twelve hours a week. 

Volunteer Administrative Assistant – Help keep our volunteer office running smoothly with data entry, scheduling, correspondence, and background checks. Two hour blocks up to 12 hours a week. 

Janitorial Services – Help our staff clean and maintain a community center that welcomes people with a clean and safe environment. 3 to 12 hours a week depending upon desire and ability.
