Volunteers play a critical role in the success of Poverello. Many of our volunteers have invessted their time with Poverello for many years. In a friendly, team-oriented environment, volunteers gain a sense of personal satisfaction while forging new relationships. Currently, there are over 200 active volunteers that donate their time and skills to Poverello. These individuals enable Poverello to keep its operating costs low, directing financial and in-kind contributions to programs and services that assist local individuals and families affected by chronic/critical illnesses.
Whether looking to fill time or searching for self actualization, the opportunities for service are plentiful. Those looking to volunteer may choose a certain project to donate their time or have a set schedule throughout the week, month or year.
Poverello offers a wide variety of opportunities for socially responsible companies to communicate their commitment to the community. Previous corporate projects have included refurbishing Poverello’s Friends Fitness Center, packing groceries in the food pantry, merchandising our thrift store, assisting the management of special projects and volunteering at special fundraising events like Bike It For Life and our signature event, Bowling to Fight Hunger.
