The Women's Auxiliary is a fundraising and volunteer service group that supports The Salvation Army's local programs. Our chapter will sponsor initiatives that enrich the lives of Silicon Valley residents by meeting their unique needs. Activities may include special fundraising through approved projects, furnishing volunteer workers, leadership in group work, and many other activities. Together, we'll work diligently to raise funds and offer hands-on support.

Each year, the Women’s Auxiliary Silicon Valley will be promoting and executing between 1-3 annual events for the purpose of raising funds and will work closely with the Advisory Board.  As our chapter grows, we plan to introduce more volunteer opportunities for you to be involved with!   Currently, we have the following annual events: Our springtime Work of A.R.T. event, which raises money to send 100 children to summer camp, and the Red Kettle Campaign, in which we partner with the Advisory Board to staff or sponsor bell-ringing stations across Silicon Valley.

Annual Women's Auxiliary Work of A.R.T. Luncheon

At our first annual Women's Auxiliary Work of A.R.T. (Adventure. Roots. Transformation) Garden Luncheon & Fine Art Drawing, women from all over Silicon Valley gathered to raise money to send underprivileged children to summer camp at The Salvation Army's Camp Redwood Glen in the Santa Cruz mountains. In addition to connecting with like-minded women who share a passion for helping others, attendees received art from talented local artists and raised money for struggling children in our community.

There are three membership options (bolded in this section). Active Members of the Women's Auxiliary are given the privilege to vote, hold office, propose new members. To qualify, women must meet the following requirements:
