Have you experienced the joy of volunteering in your community? We celebrate the significant contributions made by our many volunteers daily, not just during the month of April. We recognize that we wouldn’t be able to deliver the many services and programs we offer across the Maritimes without them. For over 100 years, we’ve counted on volunteers to support the work of The Salvation Army in communities all over the world. Whether it’s by serving a meal, standing beside a Christmas kettle, stocking shelves at a food bank, or organizing donations at a Thrift Store, our volunteers are part of the meaningful work that gives hope and help change lives.

Why Volunteer?
While the dedication of volunteers helps us to fulfill our commitment of providing support to those in need, many volunteers also find meaning for themselves in giving back, learning new skills and building connections in their communities.

What Ways Can You Volunteer?
There are several ways you volunteer with The Salvation Army. Depending on your interests and the skills you would like to build or share, there are a variety of roles suitable for individuals and groups as follows …

Administrative Volunteers
• Many volunteers who enjoy task-oriented responsibilities assist with reception, clerical, customer service or technical support roles, which can include answering phones, filing, scheduling or helping with website maintenance for various programs or departments
• Board and Advisory
• Community Outreach and Emergency Disaster Services via our CPS units
• Property and Maintenance such as caring for lawns and gardens
• Professional Service such as assisting with our Income Tax Clinics
• Special Events such as the Santa Shuffle, Christmas Kettles and more
• Thrift Stores across various communities

Through the power of volunteering, our volunteers uplift humanity, inspire hope and transform lives daily while at the same time, making a lasting impact.
