Volunteer

  • There are few things more rewarding than giving of one’s time to help others. Often referred to “the Army behind the Army,” volunteers play a crucial role in our ability to help those in need in our communities. Salvation Army volunteers change lives and transform communities and in the process, enrich their own lives.The opportunities of volunteering are as diverse as the communities we serve. Opportunities are available for individuals, corporations, schools and other organizations.

    Please call 918-587-7801, ext. 113 for more information on how you can make a difference by becoming a volunteer for The Salvation Army.
