There are many different ways to get involved with The Salvation Army. We offer volunteers a chance to change people's lives across a wide range of activities and programs - all the while, being changed themselves.

All of our volunteer opportunities are coordinated locally, where our staff understands exactly how you can be of the most help to most people.

General Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Answer phones and take messages
  • Helping in our Basic Needs Pantry
  • Help at our Thrift Store

To get started, please contact Cheryl Young, Office Administrator at (715) 394-7001 or Cheryl_Young@usc.salvationarmy.org.

Ring Bells

Salvation Army Superior Bell Ringer

Most people are familiar with our red kettles and hear those bells ringing at locations throughout Superior. The funds raised during November and December stay in our community to assist with emergencies like:

  • Utility disconnects
  • Rent when evication notices are received
  • Motel rooms when emergencies arise such as a house fire or to assist a stranded motorist due to inclement weather
  • Gasoline for vehicles to travel to work

Potential volunteers for ringing may click here to view our online schedule, email Captain Jasen Elcombe at Jasen_Elcombe@usc.salvationarmy.org, or call him (715) 969-7345.

Help During Disasters

The Best Way to Help
During disasters, the best way you can help survivors is to contribute financially. Cash donations allow disaster responders to immediately meet the specific needs of disaster survivors without incurring many of the costs associated with sorting, packing, transporting and distributing donated goods. Salvation Army disaster services are funded entirely by donors, and The Salvation Army uses 100% of all disaster donations in support of disaster relief operations.

The Salvation Army has opportunities for you to serve in times of disaster with volunteer teams. We provide training across a wide range of volunteer support services and keep you connected with your local Salvation Army for updated information.

If you are interested in learning more about these opportunities, please visit our national disaster services website.
