Volunteering and Donating your Time:
Volunteers are important to us and we want your time to be meaningful. Volunteers positions are available for individuals wanting to help in our food program and more directly with clients. We have an ongoing need for those wanting to join our sandwich making group on Thursday afternoon and those who want to serve Sunday lunch to detox and shelter clients. Likewise if you have a skill you want to share feel free to contact us to explore options. Other individual positions include help in administration and event volunteers for events such as our Casino and Annual Open House.
Small corporate, faith and friends of Alpha groups are also welcomed. Groups are welcomed to donate their time and financial resources if available to helping with needle kits making and sandwich making and general cleaning. Usually groups run between 4-12 people
