Group Projects

The Peoria Salvation Army would be happy to accommodate a group for a one-time or on-going volunteer service date. We would need advance notice in order to prepare for your group and ensure the service time will be of most value to everybody involved. 

We often times need groups to help with lawn care, warehouse organizing/cleaning, sandwich making, etc. If you do not see an opportunity that is of interest to you, we can try our best to accommodate to your interests and age group. 

Please have your point person for the group contact our Volunteer Coordinator Bailee Bauman at or at 309-253-9909.
