How to Volunteer

The Ark depends upon volunteers! Some 700 people come in each month to serve in some way. Some come in daily, some weekly, some once a month. Many people think of serving food when they think of the Ark – and lots of people do that. But there are many other things to do and there are things we are not doing because we are waiting for a volunteer! So, think about your skills and interests and how they might be used to help people in need.

If you would like to volunteer as an individual or group, please visit the Volunteer page and follow the instructions there.
