If you’ve never volunteered with us before, please take a quick look at our Volunteer Info page for some additional guidelines and other details.

** NOTE **  Beginning in December 2021, all volunteers are required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.  Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination if asked.

We now have one place “to review and choose” the right volunteering for you at DESK. We are excited to offer our volunteer opportunities using Golden Volunteer app. You can learn about getting started with us by watching a short video here or review the whole breakdown with Q&A at the end.

Get started in a volunteer opportunity. Check it out here: VOLUNTEER WITH DESK. 

You can join us at 266 State Street or 311 Temple Street.  The Soup Kitchen and Food Pantry Services at 311 Temple Street is for volunteering with our flagship programs.  The 266 State State is the Drop in Resource Center, our newest program!  Please note that volunteering at our Drop-in Center constitutes greater interaction with our clients in an enclosed setting; volunteers must be at least 16-years old.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Volunteer Coordinator, Ashley Burkell.

If you’d like to set up a recurring schedule, please use the SignUp link above or reach out to our Volunteer Coordinator.

Can’t find a date/time that works for your schedule? Consider getting involved in some other way, like organizing a Food or Toiletry Drive!  Or check one of our Volunteer Partners for additional opportunities.  Or contact us at volunteer@deskct.org.
