Volunteers are the lifeblood of our work, offering their time and talents to everything from the preparation of meals, to checking in homeless guests of the Night Shelter, to collecting donated food from around the community. Opportunities are available for individuals of every age, interest, and schedule—days, evening, and weekends. Call today for a tour and to explore the many ways that you can make a lasting positive impact on the lives of those in need, whether as an individual volunteer, family, group, or congregation.
