Volunteers are the lifeblood of the Joseph House ministry and we are so grateful for their time, talent and dedication. Volunteers manage and work at the Clothing Bank, sorting and hanging donations and assisting shoppers. Some of our volunteers pick up and deliver donations to us. Some help with painting and maintenance of the refugee apartments on an as-needed basis. Some help with our communications and social media.

We have volunteers who work at the Joseph House Clothing Bank on a weekly basis and some who work occasionally or for a special event, like changing out the inventory from one season to another or a bicycle giveaway. Some of our volunteers are student groups who get together to help with a special project, like the assembly of toiletry kits for our clients.

Volunteering strengthens our community and improves the lives of others, but did you know that it is also good for you? Studies have shown that volunteering can help reduce stress and provide you with a sense of purpose. Humans are biologically hard-wired to give to others, so the more we give, the happier we feel.
