For corporations and community groups that would like to volunteer with their colleagues and peers for the day, we offer a number of group opportunities including meal service, assisting with community outreach, and special projects throughout the year.
We serve lunch Monday through Thursday and dinner on Friday evening, providing our clients with a warm, friendly atmosphere where they can receive nutritious meals and have an opportunity for social interaction. Volunteers are an essential part of our dining room, helping us serve meals to 350 clients each day. We can host up to 10 volunteers.
Safe Sex Kit Workshop
Groups can help contribute to our community outreach efforts by assembling Safe Sex Kits, which are handed out at various events to promote safe sex as a method of preventing the spread of HIV and other sexually-transmitted diseases. GMHC provides the group with an education on the necessity of each item in the kit and the importance of safe sex practices. The workshop can accommodate up to 15 volunteers.
For our clients who are actively seeking employment, we provide them with valuable job search skills including resume and interview preparation. This is a great opportunity for groups with some experience in hiring and recruiting.
GMHC has a number of special events during the Holiday Season, including a Thanksgiving Dinner, a Holiday Dinner, and a Gift Wrapping Party. These volunteer opportunities are a great way for your group to give back in the spirit of the season. We can host up to 10 volunteers.
Other Special Events
Special projects come up throughout the year, and we are often looking for large groups to come in and help. Whether we have a mailing to go out or a space that needs to be freshly painted, we need volunteers to get the job done! Or, if your organization has a unique idea of how you can use your talents, please let contact The Volunteer Center and let us know.
