Group Volunteer Opportunities blu27
Interfaith Ministries for Greater Houston (IM) welcomes corporate, school, faith-based or other volunteer groups to help fulfill our mission.
Volunteer Groups work together to bag pet food for our aniMeals on Wheels Program, assemble breakfast meals for our most in need Meals on Wheels clients and assist staff in the warehouse to ensure that all 4,000+ meals get out on time. Special projects and holiday opportunities are also available throughout the year. All projects are subject to availability.
Many volunteer groups return over and over again to volunteer with us and say that they LOVE to volunteer at IM, but don’t take our word for it, see for yourself:
“I enjoyed the satisfaction of helping others in need. I also enjoyed working with my coworkers on a different level, and in a different environment—it was awesome!”
“This was a great experience with a very beneficial organization. I hope to retire soon and will contact you about becoming a regular volunteer.”
“Always one of my favorite volunteer events. Offers a good variety of project work to suit every need and you can feel the impact you’re having on the community in real time. I appreciate all that IM does to serve the needs of the people in our community.”
