At The Salvation Army, volunteers are truly the lifeblood of the work that we do day in and day out. Each year we hold a volunteer appreciation event to say thank you to the people, companies, and churches that have helped us in the past year. While we truly love each and every volunteer, we also use this event an an opportunity to recognize those who have gone above and beyond. Below are our honorees for 2017!
