Whether it’s embracing the homeless, uplifting the abused or abandoned, training and mentoring the disadvantaged, providing character building programs for youth, or assisting the displaced or elderly, The Salvation Army's goal remains the same: serving the most people, meeting the most needs, DOING THE MOST GOOD! When you give to The Salvation Army, expect change. Change in the number of teens finding mentors and staying in school. Change in the lives of people devastated by fire and flooding. Change in the violence plaguing our neighborhoods. Change in the lives of families torn apart by drug and alcohol addiction. By addressing the whole person – physically, emotionally and spiritually - The Salvation Army in Scranton offers hope and creates change. STUDENT/FACULTY/STAFF VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES: 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. Volunteer opportunities can consist of monthly food giveways, Christmas projects. Red kettles and ringing bells at Christmas are what most people associate with The Salvation Army. This ministry provides almost half of our annual income. We ring bells Monday through Saturday from the week before Thanksgiving until Christmas Eve. If you or a group you represent would like to “man a kettle” this Christmas season, please call now to reserve your date and time. We would love to have groups willing to perform (singing Christmas carols, instrumental music, dancing, martial arts groups practicing forms, tai chi groups, etc.) - Anything that gathers people to the kettle. Time Commitment: flexible Volunteer training and orientation provided. Clearances may be required for specific projects This site is on/near the COLTs bus route (34,35,72)
