OPPORTUNITIES TO GET INVOLVED

Opportunities to Volunteer and Donate Locally

For 2017 we already notice an uptick in new referrals of local families in need. Most of the time, we need people on weekdays for an hour or so between 9am and 4pm.

Right now we need volunteers to help pick up fresh produce from grocery stores and homes and deliver it to centers for immediate distribution.

There are also opportunities to support local schools: donate to help students enroll in after school programs, attend Grad Night and Prom, purchase bus passes, and more!

Click here for more information about these local opportunities.
