Volunteer on your own or with a group

Whether you love to work one-on-one with people in need or to work diligently behind the scenes, we have a place for you. People like you give their time and talents to help us serve our neighbors through the most devastating moments of their life. We could not do this work without generous volunteers.

Our greatest need is during daytime weekday hours, but we also schedule volunteers for Tuesday and Thursday evenings or Saturdays. The minimum age for groups of students is age 12. Children as young as age 5 may volunteer as long as they stay with their parent during their session. A typical group size is about 5 people. We can schedule larger groups during our food fair events on select Saturdays.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

  • SERVE NEIGHBORS IN THE PANTRY

    You can help count items, help people load items in their car, or stock the pantry shelves.

  • HELP MAKE THE OPPORTUNITY SHOP LOOK FABULOUS

    Hang and display clothes and accessories in the store or sort donated items in the warehouse.

  • PROVIDE A LISTENING EAR TO SOMEONE IN NEED

    Get trained to provide compassionate service one-on-one with families or individuals.

HOST A FOOD DRIVE

Food and clothing drives help sustain Second Mile’s food pantry and resale store. Some groups pick one item to collect. (They’re focused!) Other groups gather multiple items. (They’re adventurous!)

Some groups hold monthly drives and pick a different item each month. (Diapers in January, beans and rice in February, etc.) You can check our wish list page for current needs. You can request and pick up a Second Mile donation box if needed. Donations can be dropped off at our warehouse door during our hours of operation.
