Elgin Corps Advisory Board

The Salvation Army of Elgin is seeking volunteers for our Advisory Board who want to engage, empower and evaluate local programs and services. The Salvation Army’s mission is to meet basic human needs in the name of Jesus Christ. Our vision is that everyone who comes to us for assistance will be helped through our resources or those available in the community.

The Advisory Board meets every other month on the 3rd Thursday, starting in September through June, from 4:30-5:30 pm. The location is The Salvation Army at 316 Douglas Ave, Elgin.

We would like to invite you to a board orientation and strategic planning session on Saturday, September 24th from 8 am – 12 noon. This is a great place to start as a new advisory board member. As community partners, you provide valuable assistance and advice that can help us advance and continue the operations of The Salvation Army.

If you would like a personal one-on-one conversation about being an Advisory Board member, please contact Beverly Peterson, Fox Valley Regional Development Director at 815-222-1773 or beverly_peterson@usc.salvationarmy.org.
