April is national volunteer month! Last year, 480 volunteers served 21,787 volunteer hours at Valley Outreach. We couldn’t do what we do without the help of our amazing volunteers.
We often get asked, why should I volunteer? Hear from our volunteer manager, Kenny McCoy, and sign up!
Do you have time to give?

If you like spending your time doing meaningful work with a fun community of volunteers and staff, then we would love for you to join us!

Every week, Valley Outreach has volunteer opportunities available to support our Food Shelf and our StyleXchange clothing store. At our food shelf we make it easier for clients to access healthy foods, while promoting individual choice. People can choose from a variety of products like fresh produce, deli items, milk, eggs, meat and packaged items at our certified SuperShelf.
Through our clothing program, clients may select high-quality, like-new clothing at no cost to them. We provide growing kids with clothes that fit and adults with apparel right for their needs.
