Thanksgiving Volunteering Opportunities with Hope Ministries
An event every week that begins at 12:00 AM on Monday, repeating until 2020-11-16
Like past years, 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 Thanksgiving volunteer needs include:
• Wednesday, November 25 – Thanksgiving Food Donation Day: On the day before Thanksgiving, 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.
• Thursday, November 26 – Thanksgiving Onsite Volunteers: Help us assemble around 3,000 meals to be delivered into the community! Onsite volunteers must be 13 or older. The time commitment is 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
• Thursday, November 26 – Thanksgiving 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 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Sign up opens Monday, October 5th!
