“Everybody can be great. Because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and your verb agree to serve…. You don’t have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” ~Martin Luther King, Jr.
Volunteers are at the heart of the work HSP does. With a small staff, volunteers allow us to touch many more lives, extending services to seniors and children living in poverty throughout our communities. Whether it is delivering monthly food packages to seniors, creating birthday boxes for children, sorting toys or food, or any number of other vital jobs, we depend on our volunteers to make it happen. Without your amazing support we could not serve so many so please join us and give of yourself to others in need.

Food Sorting / Packing
When we have large food drives donated, we need volunteers to help us sort the non-perishables. At key times of the year we rely on volunteers to pack non-perishable food boxes for families. Individuals interested in helping can join our Monday morning team of volunteers. Groups interested can call or e-mail to schedule a time to help.
Toy Room Volunteer
All year round we need volunteers to help out with our Children’s Project. Volunteers pull gifts for children and pack birthday boxes. These volunteers also sort Party in a Bag kits and other donations as they arrive. Toy Room volunteers must be 18 or older. Make sure you call ahead for this opportunity because availability is limited.
Senior Delivery Day Driver Volunteer
Every month we rely on volunteers to deliver groceries to the homes of seniors enrolled in our programs. If you are interested we require two references which can be sent to us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Depending on the program needs we have sub driver and permanent routes available.
