Salvation Army seeks Christmas Day volunteers

San Francisco’s Salvation Army is putting a call out for Christmas Day volunteers, to help prepare and deliver meals to thousands of home bound City residents.

“The Salvation Army is all about people helping people, and volunteers are the heartbeat of the Army.  They bring an undeniable sense of joy and warmth, whether at the kettle wishing happy holidays to a shopper or serving a meal and offering a smile to a senior,” said Lieutenant Colonel Cindy Foley, Divisional Commander, Golden State Division.

The Salvation Army has been delivering meals to those in need for more than 50 years, with a focus on those who are unable to leave their homes due to illness or disabilities.

Over 200 volunteers are needed to help Salvation Army with their efforts this year.Those are are interested in preparing meals can head to the Salvation Army Central Kitchen at 850 Harrison St. from 5:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 25.

If you’re able to deliver meals by car, stop by The Salvation Army South of Market Corps at 360 Fourth St. between 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Drivers must have their own vehicle, and bring a passenger to help them.

Interested parties can sign up online at volunteer.usawest.org. For questions about volunteering, contact Major Cheryl Kinnamon at cheryl.kinnamon@usw.salvationarmy.org.
