Camillus House volunteers are diverse in every way. They are multi-cultural and speak different languages; they are students, teachers, attorneys, retired professionals, homemakers, clergy and performers to name only a few.
Camillus House offers a wide range of on-going and project-related assignments. Some volunteers help every week, others assist only with special projects or events. Volunteer opportunities exist for most every interest and schedule.
Volunteer opportunities include but aren’t limited to:
- Help prepare and/or serve food.
- Host a food or fundraising drive.
- Help organize a special event.
- Provide business consultative services.
- Teach a skill (yoga, cooking, financial literacy, etc.).
- Assist staff with clerical assignments.
- Help in the garden or warehouse.
