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.

We now have two separate SignUp links below.  The Soup Kitchen & Pantry SignUp is for volunteering with our flagship programs at 311 Temple Street.  The 266 State Drop-in & Resource Center SignUp is for volunteering with our new 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 18-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.

Once you’re signed up, please fill out the online Volunteer Release and Waiver of Liability form.  It’s quick and easy, and it will save you a few minutes when you first arrive at DESK.

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.
