Why Volunteer with The Salvation Army?

Volunteers at The Salvation Army are Doing the Most Good every day, whether they are working in the Soup Kitchen, assisting in Social Services, or hanging clothes at The Family Store. Doing the Most Good all starts with the recognition of a need, and the willingness to fulfill that need. The Salvation Army in El Paso aims to fulfill the basic needs of individuals and families. This means providing shelter, food, hygiene, and clothing. An array of programs and services are available to help see this vision to fruition.

In El Paso but also on a global scale, The Salvation Army owes its strength of service not only to the diversification of its programs but also—and more importantly—to millions of volunteers from all walks of life who share the same passion to serve. Their time and commitment enhance the Army’s effectiveness at meeting needs on the local level.
