Volunteer bell ringer smiles while ringing


It’s the kindhearted volunteers like you who help fulfill our promise to do the most good. Whether you have a specific talent to offer or simply an hour of your time, The Salvation Army is the place to turn your passion into action.

First, find an opportunity below that piques your interest. Then call Major Linda Fjellman at 701-775-2597 or sign up online, when available. It’s that simple.

Bell Ringing & Holiday Opportunities

The easiest way to help from early November through Christmas Eve is to ring a bell at one of our iconic red kettles, raising the funds that change lives all year long. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30 per hour – enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries. Sign up online.

Here are some additional ways to help:

  • Sort toy donations
  • Pack holiday meals
  • Volunteer at our Toy Shop distribution

Ongoing Opportunities

  • Sort donations in our food shelf
  • Train to be an emergency disaster services volunteer

  • Work as a grounds keeper
  • Play the piano during our worship services
