While we always welcome professionals from social services, health and construction to share their expertise with us, you don’t have to be a services professional to have a rewarding volunteer experience at Dorothy’s Place. Both Dorothy’s Kitchen and Dorothy’s Drop-In Center need your attention every day of the year.
We would love your help!
We serve breakfast 8:30 – 9:30 AM Monday through Saturday and we serve lunch 1:00 – 2:00 PM seven days a week. Saturday and Sunday lunches are handled by outside groups, who usually bring their own food and their own crew. Subsequently, we need volunteer help primarily for breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday.
Breakfast volunteers generally work 7:30 – 11:00 AM and lunch volunteers generally work 11:00 AM – 2:30 PM. We can accommodate volunteer groups of up to about 12-15 people. The youngest volunteer we can accommodate safely is ten-years-old. Any volunteer under eighteen years old must be accompanied by a parent/guardian over eighteen.
Email or phone Julieta Borges, Kitchen Program Director, with dates and times you’d like to come and she’ll be glad to make arrangements with you. Julieta’s email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Her phone is 831-276-5123. Thank you!
Dorothy’s Drop-In Center
We’re open everyday between 7:30 am – 6:00 pm. Popular volunteer opportunities include staffing our clothing closet, assisting with laundry, running the shower list and greeting and dispensing coffee.
You can volunteer on your own schedule – as many hours as you like, as frequently as you wish. We will schedule your days and times in the Drop-In Center. Please call Dorothy’s Place: 831-757-3838 or email Jacqueline Gacayan, Drop-In Center, Program Director: email@example.com.
