THE SALVATION ARMY'S ABILITY TO FULFILL THE NEEDS OF OUR COMMUNITY RELIES HEAVILY ON INDIVIDUALS JUST LIKE YOU.  We welcome your interest in becoming a volunteer. Please join us in our mission to do the most good.

There are many opportunities to help The Salvation Army Springfield Corps serve those in the community.  As a general guideline, please use the following to direct your contacts for volunteer opportunities in Springfield.  

 

Adopt-a-Family Program

Each year, hundreds of families are provided with Christmas gifts through the Adopt-a-Family program. Both individual and corporate sponsors are needed to purchase gifts that will be distributed within the Adopt-a-Family program.  You will be provided "wish lists" of toys from the needy family, from there the gifts can be purchased and dropped off at The Salvation Army.

For more information contact Lisa Bishop at 937-322-3434 ext 301 or lisa.bishop@use.salvationarmy.org

Toy Shop

Each year, at Christmas, The Salvation Army in Springfield collects toys and distributes them to needy children.  Volunteers are needed to help prep and set up the distribution facility, ususally opened 2 weeks before Christmas.  This is an enjoyable time to bless the children in our community through your time, to "shop" for them from the already donated toys for thier wish list.

To volunteer for the Toy Shop contact Ryan Ray at 937-322-3434 ext 307 or ryan.ray@use.salvationarmy.org

Red Kettle Campaign

Each year, before Christmas, the familiar Salvation Army red kettles reappear at area retailers, such as Kroger and Wal-Mart, to address the important work of collecting funds that allows The Salvation Army to serve those in need within the community.

And each year, volunteers are needed to provide the face of The Salvation Army to the community, serving some period of hours at a Red Kettle.  The amount of time spent is at your discretion, depending upon your availability and willingness to help.

To volunteer at a Red Kettle, contact Anita Albert-Watson at 937-322-3434 ext 302 or anita.albert-watson@use.salvationarmy.org
