Volunteer Opportunities - The Salvation Army of Eastern
Mission Statement
The Salvation Army, an international movement,
is an evangelical part of the universal Christian church.
Its message is based on the Bible. Its ministry is
motivated by the love of God. Its mission is to preach
the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in
His name without discrimination.
From its inception, The Salvation Army has relied
heavily on volunteers who support its programs.
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.
Volunteers are valuable assets in The Salvation
Army’s efforts to meet the changing needs of our
world. Through the skills and experience they
bring to The Army, volunteers make significant
contributions by positively impacting the lives of
those they assist. Salvation Army volunteers change
lives, uplift families and support communities
throughout our nation every day.
