Bilingual Volunteers Needed at Salvation Army Toy Drive from 12/20-12/23

The Salvation Army needs Somali & Hmong speaking volunteers for a Toys for Tots event on December 20 – 23. There are setup shifts for 12/20, tear down shifts for 12/23 and shifts for helping out on the two days of the toy shop on 12/21 and 12/22. Previously it has been difficult to communicate with clients whose first language is not English which impacted their experience with the event. The Salvation Army wants to make sure that everyone feels welcome and invited to the toy drive which is why they are seeking bilingual volunteers.


Shifts for Toy Shop Elves:

Dates: Thursday, December 21 and Friday, December 22

Times: 8:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., Noon – 4 p.m., 3:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Location: The Salvation Army, 2024 Lyndale Avenue N, Minneapolis, MN 55411
