We're in need of assistance preparing and serving weekend meals through our Sallie's Table weekend feeding program. Volunteers are needed on the following dates:
We have dates open in May, July and August.
We would love to partner with seven groups on a monthly basis. For example we have a group who serves the meal every fourth Saturday of the month. Seven additional groups are needed to make this monthly commitment.
We also have spots available for additional one time volunteer groups and individual volunteers.
The Salvation Army is located at 800 N. Cliff Avenue just south of John Morrells. Volunteers choosing to help prepare the meal are asked to arrive by 2:00 pm. During this time there'll be the opportunity to help bag Panera Bread and roll plastic ware into napkins. Tasks that children may assist with. If choosing to just serve the meal, volunteers are asked to arrive by 4:45 pm. We begin serving at 5:00 pm. We finish the meal program by 7:00 pm. To inquiry about a volunteer date, please call Marcie Priestley at 605-338-6649 ext. 317 or email at email@example.com.
