Volunteering at The Ministry of Caring

The Ministry of Caring is deeply grateful to the many volunteers who offer their time and talents, on a one-time,
occasional or ongoing basis, to further the work of our programs on behalf of the poor. Civic and corporate groups who
wish to complete a project or collect items for donations to the Ministry of Caring also are much appreciated.

The Ministry has many needs for volunteers.
