Volunteer With Us!

The HOPE Center of Maryland volunteers are the heart of our mission as we assist those with various needs in Harford County. We greatly appreciate the support of individuals, churches, businesses, and organizations within the community. There are opportunities at The Storehouse (the food distribution center). We are open to you creating your own project. Be creative! Your commitment and time are of great value to us.

All volunteer positions require an orientation and a volunteer application. Please note that volunteers under the age of 18 are required to be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian.

Volunteers (individuals or small groups of 3) may sort, repackage and batch donation boxes for our beneficiaries. Organize and restock shelves. In addition, we are also in need of drivers to collect and deliver donations.

Collection Drive

Most of the families and individuals we serve are on a limited income. Buying basic necessities can put a burden on their already stretched budget. Coordinating a collection drive is an excellent way to help those in need in Harford and Cecil Counties. With minimal planning, collection drives can be organized for your school, church, club, civic organization, or even your own neighborhood, – Any time of the year. You can browse our printable “Needs List” on the website for what is often needed. 


Other Volunteer Opportunities

These opportunities are available:

  • Be a HOPE Center prayer partner.

  • Host a fundraiser.

  • Perform administrative clerical tasks.

  • Take part in a “special events” planning committee.

  • Be a part of the Advisory Council.

We greatly appreciate all those who volunteer. We would not be able to provide these much-needed services without you!
