Donut Day Fundraiser

Activity Summary:

Every year during the summer, The Salvation Army raises funds on Chicagoland's busy street corners. The two-day event is called "Donut Day," in remembrance of World War I, when The Salvation Army distributed hearty donuts and coffee to the exhausted soldiers in the trenches of the battlefields. Funds raised during "Donut Day" support The Salvation Army's many social service programs. 

We're looking for positive, upbeat, and engaging people who understand the ministry of The Salvation Army sufficiently to answer articulately the questions of prospective donors. You must be honest and able to work well with others. You must be able to stand for hours at a time.

Volunteers are needed May 30th and 31st as well as June 6th and 7th.


  • 18 years or older
  • Reliable, professional and hard working
  • Friendly
