National Volunteer Appreciation Week

The Salvation Army has changed lives and given hope to countless people throughout the nation. But it never does it alone. Among its basic resources are volunteers like you. The ways they can help are innumerable, astonishingly diverse. Possibilities range from behind the scenes clerical duties, food pantry to supervising children in our daycare program, community meals, produce distribution, driving for food pick-ups, and so much more. Volunteers truly are integral to The Salvation Army's effectiveness here in the Capital Area. They broaden its range of effectiveness by bringing new points of view and fresh approaches. Their feedback leads to enhanced programs and even beginning new services. They are natural liaisons with the broader community, as well. It is with profound appreciation that The Salvation Army supports its volunteers by offering a good working environment and scope for their interests and abilities. They are treated with respect and provided opportunities for personal growth. Many are honored through banquets and awards. Many others obtain references in a job search. 

This week during Volunteer Application Week we honor our many Volunteers that give countless hours to serve the needs here in the Capital Area. This week we say THANK YOU! Our volunteers will all be honored at our Volunteer Banquet coming up on May 6, 2016
