Volunteer Opportunities

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul, like so many other organizations, is deeply dependent upon the time and talent that is given by volunteers. Without the dedication and commitment of our volunteers, we would not be able to function.

 

St. Vincent de Paul currently has about 80 active volunteers who generously give, on average, a total of almost 1,200 hours per month to help the poor in our community. In addition to our regular weekly opening hours at the Stapleton Road facility, our seasonal programs - Back To School, Thanksgiving food boxes, and Christmas food boxes and gifts - require many extra hands each year.  

The Society offers a wide range of ways that you can help. Most volunteer opportunities take place at our food and clothing bank on Stapleton Road.

Volunteer opportunities include: 

 

  • Providing office support

  • Greeting clients at the front desk

  • Distributing food at the pantry window

  • Sorting food and re-filling shelves

  • Cleaning 

  • Picking up bread and pastry from grocery stores

  • Sorting and distributing clothing at the window

  • Re-packaging hygiene items

  • Assisting in the warehouse

  • Weighing and receiving food, clothing, and small household item donations 

  • Monitoring the parking lot for safe traffic flow 

  • Visiting homes of clients requesting rental assistance (as part of a team)

  • Packing and distributing food boxes at Thanksgiving and Christmas
