Active Volunteer Opportunities

  • Sandwich Team — You can join one of the afternoon teams that, from Monday to Friday, prepare the 30/35 loaves of sandwiches needed for the day. In the Mission’s kitchen, you can spend an hour with a friend and Help Feed the Forgotten.

 

  • P.I.N. (People In Need) Bank — There is never a time when we are not sorting, sizing and handing out clothing and household goods. As the unofficial closet for the street population, we clothe an average of 60 people a day. Being good stewards we also recycle and launder the exchanged clothing. A great place for people with extra time during the day, and a heart to serve the forgotten.

 

  • Foot Friday —You don’t need medical expertise to be part of our Friday evening foot care outreach. Washing feet, fetching new socks and shoes, or just bringing coffee and providing a listening ear can be done by anyone that cares.

 

  • Fund Raising —The Fund Development Director is always seeking volunteers who can assist with a wide variety of duties related to the events, campaigns, and functions that the Streets Alive Mission operates in its efforts to generate the funds necessary to maintain the programs.

 

Other opportunities include:

  • Inner Works/Sunday Serving
  • Prayer Force
  • Annual Events/Fundraisers
  • Communication Teams/Newsletters
  • Mission Support (housekeeping, laundry, maintenance)
