Volunteer Stories

Our volunteers provide hope to individuals and families who find themselves in difficult situations. They are the boots-on-the ground, army behind the Army, who are activated in “Doing the Most Good”. They receive calls from those who have a wide range of needs. Here are some of the stories of volunteers who have responded in their communities during…

An Unexpected Flood

When an apartment complex flooded out and the tenants lost everything on the first floor and they didn't know where to turn, we were able to help them obtain the necessary furniture and food. It is always a good feeling when you help those in need where it does ‘the Most Good’.

COVID-19 Uncertainties

One family lost significant income due to COVID-19 with a baby and teen in the home. Our Service Unit provided ShopRite gift cards to help the family purchase food that met the dietary restrictions of the youngest, cleaning supplies, and baby items.

A Need for Shelter

I had a client who was homeless and in need of shelter. After placing the client at a motel with The Salvation Army funding and with the partnership of the other agency, she was able to move into her very own place. This was such a great feeling to know that one more person was able to overcome homelessness.

Utility Instability

My favorite memory is when a woman came in with all her medical papers and utility shut off notice. We gathered all her information for the application form, then we took time to pray together. She was so grateful for the prayer, perhaps even more so than the financial help, although that was what brought her in the door.
