We welcome the opportunity to host volunteer experiences for individuals, students and families, as well as groups small and large. Varied volunteer opportunities include: holding a food drive or small fundraiser, preparing meals for our Community Kitchen or Food Pantry, serving a meal in the Community Kitchen, serving on an event committee, participating in annual fundraising events (Tag Sale, Golf Outing, Evening of Hope, etc.), administrative help, or serving on the Board of Directors. Our Volunteer Coordinator, Michelle Stearns, can help meet your volunteer needs. Please contact Michelle here.
COVID-19 update, as of April 1, 2022 As restrictions continue to lift, we are pleased to see the return of in-person events! Check out our Events and Events Volunteering to see how you may be able to participate and/or volunteer. Thank you!
Operation Hope depends on volunteers to assist us with our day to day operations on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly or as needed basis.
Operation Hope holds events throughout the year where volunteers are needed to assist in a variety of areas. Some of the opportunities include serving on event planning committees, assisting with various pre-event tasks (including helping with mailings, phone calls and arranging event details), and assisting before, during and after the event.
We have different opportunities for groups of any size to assist us with various projects. Groups ideal for these opportunities include service organizations, corporate groups, clubs, Scouts, classrooms, etc.
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.
Operation Hope sometimes utilizes professionals to act as on-call consultants in a volunteer capacity.
