Volunteers set up tables, cook or serve meals, clean up, or distribute clothing to those in need.

DONATE items

Drop off locations for gloves, mittens & hats wherever there is a Salvation Army Red Kettle in the Canton area.


While most of our food and items are donated, there are some hard costs. Your donations, large and small, are welcome.

Volunteers Helping Canton’s Homeless on Christmas Eve!

2020 Event Cancelled Due to Covid-19 Restrictions
We plan on coming back in 2021!

Register here to become a volunteer to work in the Kitchen with food preparation, serving food, and bell-ringing during our 2021 event.  Registration will begin Oct. 1, 2021.

You are on the front line!  Serving the food to each person who comes through the line!

This is a busy place!  Re-heating the food, slicing the turkeys & ham, washing dishes, etc.

We always need folks to  donate a cooked ham or donate drinks, side dishes and desserts.


This year, and every year, the need is especially great for families to ring the bells at one of the Salvation Army kettle locations.   It’s a great way for parents and their children to have a wonderful time together—- and make a difference in the lives of those who are struggling and in need this holiday season!

Registration begins on Oct 1, 2020
