Volunteering

Do you think you might be interested in volunteering at Plowshares?

For a commitment of a couple of hours a week, we can offer you the opportunity to help those in need, meet extraordinary people from all walks of life, and enjoy our free hot meals and continued appreciation. We have a wide range of volunteer times and jobs that fit many schedules and abilities. Most are once a week, for about two hours at a time:

  • Cooks (you don’t need to know how to cook!) work mornings or afternoons.
  • Servers work for one hour at lunch or dinner, once a week or even once a month.
  • Meals-on-Wheels drivers/runners (you don’t need a car, but you do need excellent character references for this) work from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm Monday – Friday.
  • Clean-up help after meals is always appreciated and open to drop-ins.
  • Newsletter/Office work for a couple of afternoon hours, newsletters need envelopes stuffed into them usually around the last week of each month.
  • Gardening, maintenance, special projects, and other jobs are often available.

Does your company encourage Community Service? We organize corporate volunteers to serve or cook together for lunch or dinner as a team building effort.
