Volunteer Opportunities in Greenville

In partnership with Holiday Happenings and the City of Greenville, the Salvation Army is looking for volunteers to help ring bells and monitor fire pit venues during this season’s Holiday Happenings event. Celebrating its 5th year, Holiday Happenings lights up downtown Greenville with festive performances and shopping activities for all to enjoy. Fire pits will be located in three plazas off Main Street, where shoppers can stop to take a warm break and enjoy the holiday spirit. This year’s event will take place from December 2 through December 10.
