Hunger Goblin Trick-or-Treat Food Drive!

Wear your costume for a good cause! Volunteer for the annual Hunger Goblin Food Drive, which supports the VOAWW Bitter Lake Food Pantry. Costumed kids will be donating a can of food or $2 to the food bank in exchange for a trick-or-treat pass. This event brings in much needed holiday food donations, and we can't do it without you! This volunteer opportunity is family friendly!

Community Volunteer Nights

Whether it's just you and your sibling, niece or nephew, or with your kids, family-friendly volunteer opportunities provides families a way to positively impact their local community while spending quality time together and strengthening communication and bonds between parents and kids. Families can volunteer at our monthly family-friendly volunteer projects, or hold a food drive on their own.
You do not have to go through volunteer orientation to participate in one of these events. Space is limited so please click on a date below to RSVP for an upcoming Community Volunteer Night.

*Please note: These are not drop-off events. If your child is under the age of 14, there must be a parent or guardian present to volunteer with them. If your child is 14-17 and wants to volunteer alone, you must send them with a Parental Consent Form. Thank you!
