Ongoing Volunteer Opportunities

Run a Donation Drive

You can help our members by organizing a donation drive today! We need Welcome Kits for new members and Hygiene Kits for those currently experiencing homelessness. In-kind donations of gently used clothing, non-perishable food and supermarket gift cards are always welcomed!

Host a Dinner or Holiday Event

Have your group sponsor and coordinate a dinner or holiday party for residents! You can bring a fun social event to members at one of our locations!

Build a Group Service Day

We offer the option to build a service day that includes gardening or a donation drive. We include fun team building and educational activities for your office, service group, faith group or school! Come take action and learn!
