Get involved and volunteer with GRACE! Volunteer opportunities include, but are not limited to, serving a meal, donation center sorting, the GRACE Boutique, donation drives, and community outreach.

We are offering both virtual and in-person volunteer orientations. Virtual orientation takes place on the first Tuesday of each month, and in-person orientation takes place on the third Saturday of each month.

Orientation is required before you begin volunteering and is an opportunity to learn more about what we do. Just click the ‘sign up' button below. Once you register as a volunteer, we will have your name to keep you posted when positions open up again. 

We are also looking for local organizations and groups to help us steward our Donation Center on a regular basis!

Serve a Meal!

We are excited to welcome you back into Café 131! 

The dedicated staff, guests, and volunteers at GRACE have served over 876,250+ meals since 2014, but we need your help to keep it going. Our most critical need at GRACE is for volunteer groups to prepare and serve dinner in Café 131.

Serving meals at GRACE is a great opportunity for groups to directly help people in need in our community. We are currently accepting sign-ups for Lunch and Dinner services. Volunteer groups may come Wednesdays and Thursdays to serve meals, while Fridays will be reserved for individuals.
