Christmas Volunteer Opportunities



At The Salvation Army we have many different opportunities for you and your family and friends to volunteer this Christmas.


 1.    Kettles

If you wish to ring those bells, please call Dawne Anderson at 250-740-1004
Dress up…sing…bring the kids…make it fun!
Proceeds from Nanaimo Kettles stay in Nanaimo to help us with our programs in the downtown area.


2.    Christmas Hampers

Christmas Hampers are being distributed at The Salvation Army, 505 – 8th Street, on December 19th, 20th and 21st.
We are in need of ‘Shoppers’ and ‘Stockers’ on all 3 dates. 3 hours or 3.5 hour commitments needed.
Please call Kim Maandag at 250-824-0191 for more information!
Only a few spots left – call soon to secure your shift 


3.     Christmas Eve Meal Delivery

If you and your family wish to make a difference in the life of a senior who is either shut-in or would otherwise be alone this Christmas, this is the program for you!  Delivery of the Christmas Dinner takes place on December 24th between noon and 3pm.  A current RCMP Criminal Record check is required for this program.  Call Kim Maandag at 250-824-0191 or email her at


4.     Community Christmas Dinner on Christmas Eve

Dinner begins at 3:30pm, but lots of help needed all day with prep, dinner settings, plating, serving etc. Call Kim Maandag at 250-824-0191 to book your spot.


This year, why not begin a new tradition with your family. Volunteer and make the life of another just a little bit brighter!
