Court Ordered Community Service
Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 4:30pm. If you are unable to work within these time parameters, we suggest you seek out other volunteer organizations.
If you are inquiring about earning Community Service hours during the Red Kettle Campaign, you must contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Sandy Kollinger, prior to signing up for a kettle site. All community service documentation must be completed and you must complete a background check before credit will be earned for bell ringing.
If you are interested in performing Court Ordered Community Service, you will need to complete paperwork including a background check release form. This form will be filled out during your initial interview with our volunteer coordinator.
If you are under 18 years of age, your legal guardian must complete the Parental Consent Form and Release of Liability form; furthermore, we only accept volunteers age 16 and up on an as-needed basis.
During your interview we will need to make a copy of your Order of Probation (which states the infraction and that you were assigned community service) and a copy of photo ID
Submit the above listed documentation to our office, and at that time we are required to take a copy of your Court Ordered paperwork (which states the infraction and that you were assigned community service) and a copy of photo ID.
Once the completed paperwork is submitted to headquarters, the background check is completed and approved, you may begin earning community service hours. Your time is recorded by punching in and out on a timeclock. Once you have fulfilled your community service obligation at the Salvation Army, a letter will be generated per your request, documenting community service hours.
We schedule individuals for community service based on the need for help within the Plymouth Corps. We can not guarantee that there will be an opportunity to complete mandatory community service, and if this is the case we suggest you seek out additional community service opportunities within the community.
