Welcome, Volunteers!

We’re so grateful and excited to have as many of YOU as we can back onsite! HUGE thanks to all of you who continued to serve remotely, providing thousands of meals over this winter.

We’re continuing to require updated COVID vaccinations for all volunteers and requiring wearing masks onsite for the safety of everyone.

Onsite volunteer opportunities are now available at the Kennedy Shelter, Bailey’s Shelter and Supportive Housing, and the RPC Shelter in Arlington. Currently groups that work inside a building will be limited to no more than 4 individuals. Groups that are working outside on yard projects or similar activities will not have these limits.

We continue to need meals and bagged lunches. If you are signed up to prepare and drop-off hot meals or to prepare and drop off bagged lunches – thank you! – and we hope you can continue to do so. We welcome new volunteers for these activities as well.

Online volunteer orientations are held the 2nd Tuesday and 3rd Thursday of every month. The next scheduled orientations are:

Tuesday, February 14, 2023. 12 pm to 1 pm.

Thursday, February 16, 2023. 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

Thank you for your service!  In these difficult days, your care and concern mean a lot to us.
