Unfortunately our volunteer capacity is pretty limited during the pandemic. We are being careful how many people come into our building: most of the homeless people using our shelter are not vaccinated and many are already in poor health and we want to keep them as safe as possible. We currently have some new on-site volunteer opportunities available. These shifts, as well as remote volunteer opportunities, are listed below. If you would like to help with one of the tasks below, or have a creative idea for another remote volunteering project, please fill out our Volunteer Sign-Up form below!
Food Pantry: Distribution set up
We distribute groceries in our courtyard every Thursday morning and many boxes of food must be brought outside and stacked on pallets before the distribution begins. We are looking for volunteers on Thursday mornings between 7:00-7:45.
Soup Kitchen: Grocery bagging
The Soup Kitchen receives a carload of grocery store donations each morning, mostly breads, desserts, breakfast pastries, and some prepared foods and meats. This all needs to be packed into bags, which are offered to our Soup Kitchen guests when they are picking up their lunches. We are looking for volunteers who can do a weekly shift on either Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday from 9:00-10:30. This can be done inside or in the courtyard depending on vaccination status and volunteer preference.
We rely on volunteer drivers for our Food Rescue Project. Trinity does not own vehicles so volunteers play a big role in picking up donations of leftover food that stores set aside for us. Food is picked up daily and volunteers commit to one shift per week. We do not currently have any shifts open but please fill out the sign-up form if you are interested and we’ll reach out if someone drops out!
We welcome groups interested in holding fundraisers and supply drives for our programs! These are events that we simply don’t have the manpower to run on our own but they are an important source of donations and a great way to spread the word about Trinity. See our Contribute page for a list of needed supplies.
There is a lot of work to be done at the Center and many tasks that we would love assistance with. If you have special skills or are interested in other options for volunteering please get in touch with us!
