We have recruited over 300 volunteers to supplement our small paid staff of mostly part-time employees, making us one of New Rochelle’s largest volunteer efforts.

Volunteer Opportunities at HOPE

We ask that you please email us at info@hope-cs.org or call 914-636-4010 to schedule a date for a group of 3 to 8. Groups should not exceed 8 volunteers including chaperones of 13 year olds. Individual Volunteers can just show up.

Soup Kitchen

Dinner is served every Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday, and the last two Mondays of the Month. Volunteers generally are needed between the hours of 4:30 and 6:00 PM on those days. Volunteers serve dinner to our clients, prepare “take-away” meals for distribution at the end of the meal and assist in clean up after dinner. MINIMUM VOLUNTEER AGE: 13.


Pantry bags are distributed every other Wednesday between the hours of 9AM and 12NOON. Volunteers are needed every Tuesday and Wednesday between 9 and 12. Pantry volunteers help unload and sort non-perishables that are delivered to HOPE. On the Tuesdays of distribution weeks volunteers pack the bags that will be distributed the next day. MINIMUM VOLUNTEER AGE: 13.
