Volunteering is a great way to generate the spirit of Christmas. And volunteering is an effective way to help those in need.
As The Salvation Army embarks on its Christmas campaign, it counts on the hands and arms of volunteers to make Christmas memorable for people who need care.
From the Army’s iconic red kettle, to Christmas hampers, to feeding the hungry, people from all walks of life are making a difference in the lives of those who need help in some of the darkest days of their lives.
When Diane’s husband had just asked for a divorce, it was a Salvation Army bell-ringer who encouraged her with kind words. And when Julia, a volunteer at a Salvation Army toy distribution centre, handed a pair of little red gloves to a child, the girl cried because she was so happy.
Volunteering doesn’t take a lot of time or special skills, just a willing heart.
