Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

 

Volunteer Dates and Descriptions for 2017 are in date order

Notice: On very rare occasions, volunteer opportunity dates and/or times may be changed due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts. Generally, the Regional Food Bank truck deliveries are on the second Monday of the month at 10:30 a.m. at the Dorothy Day Center. The grocery deliveries to low-income senior apartment complexes and low-income individuals and families in households are held on the third and fourth Saturdays of each month at 9 a.m. October-May and 8 a.m. June-September. In November and December, dates are different due to scheduling with the additional parish Holiday Program. Check the Volunteer Opportunities listing on the home page or The Dorothy Day Center and St. Charles Community Garden on Facebook for updates or changes!
