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 June 24, 2021 As restrictions continue to lift, we are excited to announce we have in-person openings this summer to help our neighbors in need! Keep an eye out for opportunities as they become available. Thank you!
