Drop-in Volunteering

Can’t make a weekly commitment due to an ever-changing schedule? Want to be able to volunteer at multiple locations throughout the cycle? Then choosing the drop-in option is right for you! Four of our volunteer sites (Golda, Daily Table, the Paulist Center, and Hebrew Senior Life) can accommodate a few drop-in volunteers per night.  If you select this option, you will be able to select as many or as few nights as you like. Each week drop-in volunteers will be notified that sign-ups are available, and spots will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.

If you would like more information on ReachOut!, contact Shoshana Edelson, Young Adult Social Justice Coordinator.
