We have a variety of group volunteer opportunities at People Serving People, both off-site and on-site.

People Serving People has temporarily suspended on-site volunteer opportunities.
This is to ensure the safety of our guests and community by limiting the number of visitors in and out of our buildings. This will be a difficult change for our outstanding community of volunteers, supporters and our organization. We invite those who are looking to contribute to our organization during this uncertain time to make a donation or monetary gift.
