Volunteers play a pivotal role in one of The Salvation Army’s key services- feeding the hungry. Every day, The Salvation Army kitchen serves 3 meals to hungry men, women, and children. Volunteers help prepare, serve the meal, and assist with cleanup. Their friendly faces go a long way in providing not only physical nourishment, but also encouragement to those in need. We would love for you to join us! The kitchen is located in The Center of Hope at 2015 26th Avenue N. Breakfast is from 5:30 a.m. - 8:00 a.m. Lunch is from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Dinner is from 4:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

• Trained volunteer coaches help them learn important life skills through engaging lessons and fun running activities.
• The nationally proven curriculum focuses on three main themes:
o understanding ourselves,

• At the end of the 10-week program the girls complete a celebratory 5k run that gives them a tremendous sense of accomplishment.

One of the biggest barriers to cancer care is transportation, because even the best treatment cannot work if a patient is unable to get there... That is why the American Cancer Society's Road to Recovery program provides patients with free rides to/from their cancer-related treatments. For those who cannot drive themselves or have no other means of getting to treatment, volunteers donate their spare time and the use of their personal vehicle to give patients a much-needed ride. And we need your help! Every volunteer makes a difference and every driver has what it takes to help save lives.
Prior to driving, volunteers will complete a short, online training and criminal/driving record background check.
Shelby Humane supports our community in many ways. Our Quick Fix program provides low cost spay/neuter procedures in collaboration with veterinarians throughout the Birmingham area. It is one of the most important things we do because spay/neuter programs can significantly reduce the severe animal overpopulation problem in Alabama.
We need volunteers to help with client communication and simple data entry. It will involve answering questions from the public, scheduling surgeries with our veterinarian partners, and making reminder calls to clients before their scheduled appointment. The work is not difficult but very important to our program. Our staff will teach everything you need to know. The number of hours you volunteer is completely up to you but having regular days and times will help us plan our day. Please consider helping us build a program that really does save lives.
