Thank you to our amazing volunteers

During National Volunteer Week from April 23 to 29th we would like to take the time to celebrate our volunteer’s contributions and thank them for their support. 

Our volunteers serve passionately, willingly and selflessly on the front lines, bringing hope to those in need and for that we are grateful.

Each year in British Columbia we provide 1,227,895 meals for the hungry and 228,488 adults and children are served through our community and family services.  None of this would be possible without the ongoing commitment of our volunteers who generously take the time out of their daily lives to help those in need in their community. 

Salvation Army volunteers come from all walks of life. Accountants help people complete income tax forms. Dieticians teach people how to make cost-effective, nutritious meals.  Teachers offer newcomers literacy classes. Many hands deliver hope.  Thank you for your ongoing commitment.

With your support we are able to provide encouragement and hope for those who need it the most.

To continue meeting the need of our neighbours, The Salvation Army needs volunteers as never before. For more information on volunteering with The Salvation Army, click here.

‘the war to end all wars’.

In their efforts to encourage and assist the troops they initially offered the same wholesome activities they’d provided at home; religious services, the playing of music, hot cocoa and fudge.
