For more than 150 years, The Salvation Army has sought to be a shield for those in crisis. When you partner with us to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and provide hope to the lost, you become a shield, too. Often referred to as “the army behind The Army,” volunteers play a crucial role in The Salvation Army’s ability to provide quality social services for the entire community.
