Give Back to the Sandhills!

When you volunteer with The Salvation Army, you are doing good in a number of ways! You're providing hope to the hopeless, enabling us to help more people by helping us save money, and creating connections to build a strong community that cares for its homeless and needy citizens. When you give financially or donate items to the Salvation Army you are allowing us to serve the community by providing meals, shelter to the homeless, a safe & fun program for kids, provide disaster services during times of crisis - the list goes on!

The Holiday season is The Salvation Army's busiest time of year! There are many ways to volunteer, and help those most in need have a Merry Christmas! We have our Angel Tree program and our Red Kettles.

Pop back in October to learn ALL about seasonal volunteer opportunities!

A special shoutout to all of our AMAZING volunteers, and those members of our community who stepped up and adopted Angels, who sponsored a Kettle, who donated to our Red Kettle and to our Bill Shaw Fund. WE THANK YOU!!
