Volunteering at The Salvation Army gives me a sense of purpose. It helps me feel like my presence is needed. It helps me deal with challenges in my own life and to work harder to overcome the things I need to so I can be present for the residents of The Salvation Army.
Volunteering with The Salvation Army has reminded me [that] helping others isn’t about just giving money and moving on.People appreciate time and companionship more than anything and look forward to spending time with someone who can truly give the greatest gift: friendship.
