Your volunteering will immediately help distribute foods and supplies to support a Healthy & Whole community. Last year, over 135 adult and student volunteers donated 10,625 hours to help people in our community. Helpline House volunteers gain skills, meet new friends, learn best practices to lend a helping hand while making our island a better place. Volunteers commit their time on a weekly or substitute basis.  Please review the volunteer handbook for more information.
