The Salvation Army Greater Birmingham Area Command is changing lives and giving hope to countless people throughout our area.

We don't do this alone.

WHY SERVE

 

It’s people just like you who make our programs possible by choosing to give your time. 

When you join our team of volunteers, you’re helping us build communities where lives are changed and hope is found. Volunteers are one of our strongest resources in meeting the needs of a community. 

Volunteer opportunities are available and we would love for you to #SERVE with us.

The Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham can’t help hungry people get food without donations from the community. An average of 200 families in Birmingham seek food assistance every month, most with small children.

Food drives and donations of all sizes help keep the food pantry shelves full.  Please call  205-328-2420  if you or your group would like to donate food items or host a food drive to support The Salvation Army of Greater Birmingham and/or The Salvation Army Bessemer Service Center.   

Food donations can be dropped off at 2015 26th Ave North in Birmingham, Monday-Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. and at the Bessemer Service Center at 525 13th Street North in Bessemer. 

For pick up and delivery in Birmingham call  205-328-2420 . For pick up and delivery in Bessemer, call  205-425-4303 .
