Free Training to Become a Certified Disaster Volunteer

The Salvation Army of Tallahassee is looking for volunteers who are interested in serving their local community!  Are you passionate about helping others?  Are you looking for a way to make a meaningful impact? We need you!
To serve the needs of our community during a disaster or during other times of need, we need trained volunteers with a desire to help. The Salvation Army typically feeds our local community in times of disaster. Our passion is making sure no one goes without a hot meal when their
lives are already in turmoil.
The Salvation Army of Tallahassee will be holding a series of training sessions that are required to become a disaster volunteer with our team.  We encourage you to come and learn what it means to be a disaster volunteer and leave with the tools you need to be one of our volunteers who are the “Army Behind the Army”.
