The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of Hampton Roads is a dynamic group of women empowering families in need. The organization’s mission is to assist The Salvation Army in Hampton Roads with a particular part or all its programs, functioning as a fundraising and volunteer service group.
The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary of Hampton Roads had its beginning in the fall of 2005 when a small group of women began meeting. The main objective was to form an Auxiliary as soon as possible to begin raising funds for the transitional housing program, HOPE Village.
Since being chartered in March 2006 the Auxiliary working as a group supporting The Salvation Army’s charitable events with donations and volunteer support for Angel Tree, Christmas Stocking Stuffing, Christmas Distribution and more. When officially chartered, the Auxiliary installed its first board and had over 30 women at the first membership luncheon.
The Salvation Army Women’s Auxiliary meets on the third Monday of each month at The Salvation Army Ray and Joan Kroc Corps Community Center, 1401 Ballentine Blvd. Norfolk, VA. 23502. They are always excited to welcome new members and businesses in the community to join in “Doing the Most Good!”
