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 10:30am. 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 make a few client calls each week from home or work instead.

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

Additional Volunteer Opportunities:

Mobilize Volunteer Shoppers (weekly): Welcome and train new volunteers at the Hollywood Fred Meyer when we shop (Wednesdays and/or Thursdays).
