We rely on the valuable contributions of more than 3,000 volunteers annually to provide quality services to seniors and refugees.
We have many volunteer opportunities for individuals, families and groups to help serve people in need; in addition, many of our projects are appropriate for families with children.
Individuals can volunteer in a number of ways:
Groups can volunteer in a number of ways:
We are always looking for volunteers to help out around our office with some clerical tasks to enhance the working experience of everyone. Administrative volunteers will help the department that it chooses to volunteer for. Training will be provided.
Interfaith Ministries hosts several events a year including our annual Gala, For All Humanity Luncheon, Best Friends Brunch, Meals on Wheels Thanksgiving event, Holiday Gift Bag event, and other smaller events. Volunteers can help execute these fun events year round.
In addition to our ongoing volunteer opportunities, IM also offers several one-time opportunities for those who are eager to help out but unsure if they can handle a longer commitment.
IM is always in need of items for our seniors, their pets, and refugees. Hold a drive for our Meals on Wheels seniors to help fill their holiday gift bags. Items needed are: shampoo, bath soap, hand soap, socks, gloves, scarves and other needed items. Our aniMeals on Wheels program is dependent on the community and is always in need of pet food. Volunteers currently deliver at least 8,000 pounds of pet food a month. You can help us collect pet food to keep the program going. Refugees come with whatever they can carry. Sometimes, it is not much. They are always in need of clothing for adults and children. We will provide you with literature and photos for any of the drives you choose to do.
