Holiday Volunteering & Ways to Give

Be A Bell Ringer

On average, just 60 minutes of red kettle bell ringing yield enough in donations to feed 13 people. Sign up now to ring this Christmas – and help fight to put food on the table for those most in need. Ring as an individual, a family, a company, a school, a team or a church. We have a variety of convenient locations and times. This is an ideal volunteer opportunity for teens to meet their community service hours. Bell ringers are needed between November 15, 2019 and December 24, 2019 (Monday through Saturday).

To volunteer to ring the bell at our Annual Red Kettle Campaign email Major Steve Carroll or call (716) 283-7697.

Host A Countertop Kettle At Your Business

Host a small countertop kettle near your cash register or reception area. Kettles can be hosted between October 1 - December 24th.

Food & Toy Drives

You may sponsor a toy drive or a food drive with your coworkers during the holiday season. The proceeds from these drives will be distributed to struggling families and children to brighten their Christmas.

Host An Angel Tree or Buy A Gift From An Angel Tree

Host an Angel Tree for customers, clients or employees to purchase gifts for specific individuals in need in your area. The program is simple: The Salvation Army provides Angel Tree tags to be hung on your Christmas tree. Donors can choose a tag that lists various ages and gift wishes and purchase the requested gifts, drop them at a pre-determined collection site and The Salvation Army will deliver the gifts for the children and young teens to open on Christmas morning.

Adopt A Family

Families, individuals or businesses can adopt an entire family. This includes at least 2 gifts for every child in the family age 12 and under, and at least 1 family gift, and sometimes also includes food for a Christmas dinner.

Food & Toy Distribution Volunteering

To volunteer for sorting or packing for the food and toy distribution, email Major Delia Carroll or call (716) 283-7697.

They can expect to be greeted and treated with respect and dignity.

Meet Our Leaders - Majors Delia & Stephen Carroll

Majors Delia and Stephen CarrollBoth of the Carrolls come from Salvation Army families and have been involved with the Army and its work their entire lives. Prior to entering the Salvation Army’s College for Officer Training in 2002, Delia worked as the administrative assistant for The Salvation Army’s Project 117 (School for Youth Ministry and Mission) and Stephen worked as the youth ministry director for Rockland County, NY. As a result of their experiences at Ground Zero on September 11th, 2001, the Carrolls have committed their lives to the service of God as officers in The Salvation Army.

The Carrolls have family ties to both the city of Niagara Falls and to The Salvation Army corps in Niagara Falls. Major Delia’s great-grandparents, Charles and Mary Moore, directed The Salvation Army’s Griffon Manor outreach programs in the 1940s. Major Delia's grandfather, Major Daniel Moore, went to The Salvation Army Seminary from Niagara Falls in the early 1950s. Major Stephen’s mother was one of the children impacted by The Salvation Army youth outreach programs in the 1960s.

The Carrolls, along with their 4 sons, Logan (14), Lance (10), Lucas (7) and Levi (4), look forward to many more years of serving the Lord through the ministry He provides them at The Salvation Army in Niagara Falls.
