Volunteer Opportunities at The Center

Volunteers (individuals or small groups of 4) may sort, repackage, and batch donation boxes for our food partners. In addition, organize and restock shelves, and put together weekend meal bags for at-risk children. We are also in need of drivers to collect and deliver donations.

Sponsor a
"Help Us... Help Others" 
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 County. With minimal planning, collection drives can be organized through your school, church, club, workplace, or even your own neighborhood, at 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!
