Every month, over 450 volunteers find a place in their schedule and a place in their heart to volunteer at the Inn of the Good Shepherd. Whether it’s preparing a meal, helping to package or sort food, guiding clients or helping at a fundraiser – it’s a chance to outreach to the community and touch lives.
If you have a bit of time available and would like to volunteer, consider these opportunities:
Food Bank Guides – Guides work one morning a week from 9:15 – noon; assisting clients in making food choices and recording “points” spent as they select food.
Sewing skills needed – there are a number of donated winter coats that need minor repairs and zippers replaced. A few minutes of sewing can help keep someone warm this winter.
Are you interested in helping others in our community? At the Inn you can find rewarding volunteer roles suited for the time you have to give. Currently, the organization is looking for:
