Christmas Volunteering Opportunities
November 2 @ 8:00 AM - November 6 @ 4:30 PM
Hope Ministries plans to deliver thousands of meals around the Des Moines area to individuals and families in need. Due to COVID-19, we will be taking health/safety precautions including masks, social distancing and temperature checks.
Our Christmas volunteer needs include:
• Thursday, December 24 – Christmas Food Donation Day: On the day before Christmas, we will receive thousands of food donations from community members! Unlike past years, due to the pandemic, this will be a drive-through event. The time commitment is 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
• Friday, December 25 – Christmas Onsite Volunteers: Help us assemble around 2,300+ meals to be delivered into the community! Onsite volunteers must be 13 or older. The time commitment is 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
• Friday, December 25 – Christmas Meal Delivery Driver Teams: This is a great opportunity for families with younger children! Help deliver meals around Des Moines. We will provide addresses several days in advance so you can use your phone/GPS to map a route. The time commitment is 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
