Salvation Army seeks auxiliary

The Women’s Auxiliary of the Altoona Salvation Army is looking for women who are excited to serve their community.

The Women’s Auxiliary consists of dedicated volunteers who are interested in assisting with and supporting Salvation Army programs.

This group provides financial support to the Corp through annual dues and fundraising events.

The Women’s Auxiliary isn’t just about ringing bells and fundraising; there are also other opportunities to become involved and support the good that the Salvation Army does.

The Altoona Women’s Auxiliary assists with preparation for the free Thanksgiving community dinner, the Treasures for Children program, a program for needy children in the Altoona area, and also the Project Bundle-Up program, a program for children and senior citizens to receive free winter coats.

The Altoona Salvation Army’s Women’s Auxiliary meets every second Tuesday of the month during the months of September through May.

Meetings begin at 6:30 p.m. and typically last an hour to an hour and a half.

Women interested in making a difference in their community are strongly encouraged to contact Capt. Darlene Means at the Salvation Army to discuss their interest.

Means can be reached from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Friday by calling 942-8104 or emailing
