The Do Gooders Podcast

Dec 6, 2021

It’s the season of giving. 

Giving love, giving thanks. Giving to a red kettle near you.

And while those bells ring, it’s also a season when many give of their time. 

They volunteer.

Each year more than 3 million people of all ages volunteer their time, talents and resources to assist The Salvation Army's work across the U.S. These volunteers are critical partners in helping The Salvation Army fulfill its promise of "Doing the Most Good."

And yes, 3 million people is a lot of people. So I’d like to introduce you to just one of them today. 

Dustin Wallace is a long-time Salvation Army volunteer because he loves it. 

He’s a graduate of The Salvation Army’s addictions rehabilitation program and now attends The Salvation Army corps, or church, in Seattle. He regularly volunteers alongside his husband—from distributing meals or hygiene items to those experiencing homelessness, ringing the bell at a kettle or assisting in the toy distribution at Christmas.

He’s here to share more about his experience with the organization, why he chooses to give back and why he believes anyone can be the reason somebody believes in goodness.
