New Volunteers

Looking for a way to help out? Thanks for considering volunteering at Ministry with Community (MwC)! For any questions or to schedule a tour, contact Megan Stull, Volunteer Coordinator at 343-6073 ext. 134 or volunteers@ministrywithcommunity.org.

At MwC, we’re able to serve more people without dramatically increasing our budget by encouraging our members and community friends to volunteer. Volunteers work in the kitchen, serve food, clean, carry groceries, answer phones, oversee activities and manage the reception area. All volunteers at MwC must be able to interact with others with compassion, flexibility, and sensitivity. Volunteers must also have the ability to serve adults experiencing homelessness, poverty, mental illness, and/or substance abuse.

Current Volunteer Needs

Activities: Activity volunteers put the fun and games into MwC! Activity volunteers help provide members with fun, entertaining or educational activities. This opportunity is a great way to share your talents, skills and interests with our members. Some examples of activity opportunities include bingo, holiday parties, board games, arts & crafts, etc. Volunteers will collaborate with the Volunteer Coordinator to create and plan activities for our members. We ask that volunteers provide supplies & prizes unless other arrangements are made with the Volunteer Coordinator.  Activity hours are set by the volunteers and the Volunteer Coordinator.

Meal Service: Meals are served twice a day and 365 days of the year at MwC. On a given day we typically serve 300-500 people. Meal Servers assist with kitchen duties required to serve lunch time meals to members. These duties include: preparation of food, setting tables, serving lunch, and cleaning the dining room. Breakfast Severs are scheduled from 7:15-9:15am and Lunch Servers are scheduled from 12:45-2:45pm. Depending on the day, we typically can schedule 5-8 volunteers from a group. Meal Servers work with the Volunteer Coordinator to set their schedule.

Sewing Circles: Sewing circle volunteers turn new and old t-shirts into reusable bags for our members. Using either their own collected t-shirts or t-shirts that we have had donated, sewing circle volunteers create bags.  Groups can be 1 to 6 people, can sew either here at MwC or at home. Strong sewing skills are not required. Hours are set by the volunteers and the Volunteer Coordinator.

We’re always looking for volunteers, whether individuals or groups, to come in and run activities for our members (the people we serve). Activities include but are not limited to: bingo, ice cream socials, game days, arts and crafts, and music and other entertainment. If you have an activity or talent you’d like to share, let us know!
