HOW YOU CAN HELP DURING THIS CHRISTMAS SEASON
Red Kettle Volunteer
The Red Kettle Campaign is The Salvation Army’s largest annual fundraiser with proceeds used to provide programs and services throughout the year.
Greet people with the spirit of Christmas! Help change the heart of our community during the Christmas season. Kettles are located at 65 area businesses throughout the greater Jackson area. It takes an army of volunteers – over 10,000 volunteers needed – to man the red kettles. It’s a fun activity for the family, a church or civic group or for an individual, and we know that you’ll be blessed by the experience.
Angel Tree Toy Shop Volunteer
We are in need of many, many groups of men and women of all ages (age 16+) to be our Christmas Elves this year! They will check in the thousands of donated Angel Tree Christmas gifts and assemble bicycles! This is an easy one… a feel good project. This does not require a spiritual giant, just someone who has the understanding of how to dress children and seniors and to read a list. Volunteers will be going through the Christmas bags of toys and clothes to make sure there is not a melt down on Christmas morning because Thomas got a train, a basketball and goal and Suzy only got a pair of mittens. Also, making sure all children receive devotional books.
Angel Tree Distribution Volunteer
(Distribution Day) (Toy Shop Clean-Up)
This is the process of the Angel Tree recipients (parents) picking up the gifts for their children to have on Christmas morning.
Youth/College Groups age 16+: Checking in the parent/guardian, leading to the Worship Service and then afterward, loading Angel Tree parent’s car.

Thank YOU for making this Christmas season a success.
None of this can be possible without our selfless volunteers.
