Our faithful volunteers do so much to help us assist our neighbors in need.
Last year alone they logged over 25,000 hours stocking the shelves at our
area food pantries, tutoring young students at our After School Learning Centers
and answering our 24-hour hotline for victims of human trafficking.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, nearly 62.6 million people volunteered last year, spending a median of 50 hours during the year on volunteer activities.
National Volunteer Week is a great time to get involved.
Here are a few ways you can take an active role at The Salvation Army and in our community:
-Volunteer in one of our seven area food pantries.
-Help people prepare for better job opportunities by serving as a classroom aide,
and/or be a math, reading and/or computer tutor in our Career Enhancement Center.
-Mentor or tutor our After School Learning Center Students and help motivate and
encourage youth to reach their potential. Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator,
Dinah O’Dell, at 614.358.2627 or Dinah.ODell@use.SalvationArmy.org to help or you can also

-Answer the phone after hours and on weekends. We need volunteers to staff our 24-hour
Anti-Human Trafficking hotline and respond to the immediate needs of clients or law enforcement calling in. Volunteers are trained and asked to answer the hotline for a one-month period.
