They signed up to volunteer and began serving that same week. Seeing the needs of the community first hand has given them a new appreciation for all their blessings.

“The Salvation Army has allowed us to be a small part of what they do for the community. They have given a lot of people a ray of hope,” said Trent. “All you need is a little hope and help.”

Their favorite part about volunteering? The smiles of the staff, volunteers and clients. “They smile and you can see all the way to their heart,” shared Trent.

“I believe the volunteers get more out of their experience than the clients,” added Nancy.

Trent and Nancy may consider their volunteering a “small part,” but to the staff, clients and other volunteers, they are so much more.
