Be A Volunteer
Packing and Assembling Crew. Four teams of 8 people will be needed, will be needed November 10th and 11th, 2018.
On The Street Crew Members. These shifts go from 7 – 11 p.m., November 12th – 15th, with one daytime shift, from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.. on November 15th.
It’s important we treat everyone with dignity and respect. Our crew goes out in teams of no less than three people, along with a team leader. It’s important that you be comfortable interacting and talking with people living on the street, understanding that a person’s circumstances do not make them any less deserving of kindness and compassion.
It’s pretty amazing the difference a smile and friendly conversation can do to someone who’s homeless, and often feels invisible to the world.
PLEASE NOTE: Volunteers who are going out with the backpacks need to attend a mandatory 30-minute orientation before their shift.
If joining our team interests you, please sign up on our official volunteer registration page, or fill out the form below, and our volunteer coordinator will contact you. For more information, email us.
