Make a Difference This Season

Volunteering can give children a sense of pride in helping others and instill a lifetime of giving back to their community.

People’s City Mission –
a Great Place to Volunteer!
People’s City Mission has been helping people for over 100 years, providing them with emergency assistance for food, shelter, and clothing. Consider one of these opportunities to volunteer as a family:
Help at the solo daycare. This is volunteer-based and only open when a volunteer is present. Background check and orientation is required.
Serve meals. Kids ages 9 years or older can help serve a meal with an adult. Lunch is from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and dinner is from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Bus tables during lunch time, Monday - Friday, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
Here are other ways to get involved:
Meals to Go. Items would need to be purchased by the volunteer or raise funds to purchase them.
Collect items. Socks, blankets, backpacks, personal hygiene products, diapers, water, non-perishable foods, and other items can be collected.
Recycle dead textiles. Recycling dead textiles keeps them out of the landfills and helps to offset expenses for the Help Center facility.

Donate water - an essential need in hot weather.
