Thanks for your interest!

Every week, it takes more than 100 dedicated volunteers to make our services possible. Whether you’re looking to help just one time or you’re interested in an on-going opportunity, you can make a difference today!

Volunteer Opportunities

Shop for Groceries at Hollywood Fred Meyer: Think of it like a scavenger hunt for a cause. Join a fun group of shoppers any Wednesday or Thursday morning from 8:30am to about 11:30am. Groups are welcome (max 10)! Call 503-200-3333 ext. 008.

Take Grocery Orders: Call clients each week to help them place their grocery orders. This role is ideal if you enjoy making personal connections. Calls are made from our SW Portland office during Monday or Tuesday shifts. If you need greater flexibility, you can opt to make a few client calls each week from home or work.

Deliver Groceries:Deliver nourishment and companionship every week. If you are looking for a fulfilling long-term volunteer position where you have direct contact with clients, this is for you. Deliveries are either Wednesday or Thursday morning/afternoon and take 1 to 3 hours, depending on your schedule.
