We have some opportunities for students to get involved with Operation Hope. Students 18 years and older can help serve lunches or dinners in our Community Kitchen at 50 Nichols Street or help with occasional events.
Students of all ages can assist us by running food and toiletry drives, small fundraisers such as lemonade stands and bake sales, and preparing meals and baked goods for both our Community Kitchen and our Food Pantry. Opportunities for groups both large and small can include but are not limited to:
- Gather at your own location and prepare large meals to feed 50 people for our Community Kitchen or smaller freezer-ready meals for our Food Pantry.
- Organize and run food and/or toiletry drives to supply our Food Pantry. We understand many drives are held Saturdays and Sundays but do request that donations be held until the office is open. We do not have staff available to assist when the office is closed.
Projects are not limited to these ideas. Please contact Volunteer Coordinator Michelle Stearns at [email protected] for additional ideas for how your group may help us fill a need for our clients.
