Volunteer Opportunity with the Salvation Army

The Salvation Army is looking for volunteers for their Christmas assistance project that will be starting very soon!

There are two kinds of volunteer opportunities. One is to help people sign up for Christmas toy assistance, and the other is helping people pick out the perfect toys.

For sign up, volunteers (must be at least 18 years of age) are needed to help folks sign-up for the Christmas toy assistance–especially volunteers who speak Spanish.

The sign-up location is The Salvation Army located at 351 SE Oak St. Hillsboro, Oregon.

The Christmas assistance Sign-ups days are:

  • Wednesday Oct 25th @ 9am to 12 pm & 1:00pm to 3:30 pm (Closed from 12:00pm to 1:00pm for lunch) Lunch provided to volunteers during this time.
  • Wednesday Nov 1st  @ 9am to 12 pm & 1:00pm to 3:30 pm (Closed from 12:00pm to 1:00pm for lunch) Lunch provided to  volunteers during this time.
  • Wednesday Nov 8th @ 9am to 12 pm & 1:00pm to 3:30 pm (Closed from 12:00pm to 1:00pm for lunch) Lunch provided to volunteers during this time.

Volunteers are also needed to help folks get their toys! The distribution of toys will be at a site that is still to be determined, but it will be in Hillsboro.

The volunteers (must be at least 18 years of age) will help the client shop for age appropriate toys for each child signed up. Volunteers can help restock the tables with toys and organize toys that come into the site before the toys are moved to the tables.

The Distribution days for the picking toys are:

  • December 20th  @ 9am to 12 pm & 1:00pm to 3:30 pm (Closed from 12:00pm to 1:00pm for lunch) Lunch provided to volunteers during this time.
  • December 21th  @ 9am to 12 pm & 1:00pm to 3:30 pm (Closed from 12:00pm to 1:00pm for lunch) Lunch provided to volunteers during this time.
  • December 22th  @ 9am to 12 pm & 1:00pm to 3:30 pm (Closed from 12:00pm to 1:00pm for lunch) Lunch provided to volunteers during  this time.
