Sign up to Volunteer

We have new shifts available! Until Thanksgiving, we will still staff volunteers for extended hours as our clients adjust to the new hours. Tuesday and Thursday shifts will be split into two parts 8:30 am-11 am and 11 am-1:30 pm. After Thanksgiving, we will shorten those shifts!

Remember to dress appropriately for outdoor work. Sign up online if you can volunteer this week.

We have adjusted stocking shifts to spread out the work over several smaller shifts to accommodate safety needs. We are asking all volunteers to review our COVID-19 Policy. Please do not come in if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, and please give us as much notice as possible. You can delete your name from Sign Up Genius or email to let us know.

WE NEED YOU! Monday we get our large order from Mid-Ohio Foodbank and it takes a ton of people to unload it all! If you're available 12 pm to 3 pm please sign up. If you have any experience driving a box truck, we could use a driver too!

Upcoming Events

Remember, Heart to Heart is closed (there will be no volunteer shifts) from Wednesday, November 25 through Friday, November 27.

Notes for Volunteers

  • We can no longer accept donations of used plastic grocery bags. Please do not bring them to the annex for donation.
  • Do you know an organization that could regularly supply us with a donation of goods distribution? Perhaps your friend manages a pet store and would like to donate dog food. We would love to make a connection! We are especially interested in pet food, toilet paper, and diapers. Please contact us to make arrangements.
  • If you would like to volunteer for Heart to Heart, but remain at home due to the pandemic, please contact us. We have a few jobs that could be done from the safety and comfort of your home, on the phone.
  • Any handy people willing to help build a solid, smooth surface for the floor of the church van, please contact us.
  • In response to COVID-19 recommendations, all van drivers will be required to follow cleaning and disinfecting routines going forward. These instructions will be posted inside the van.
