You made it here! This means that you want to be a part of something very special and make a difference in your community.
We at Matthews HELP Center are working together to help our neighbors in need. We are, as our logo expresses, “A House with a Heart.”
There are so many wonderful opportunities here for you to share your talents and your time. Our volunteers’ kind spirits and generosity are what allow us to serve those suffering in a crisis situation. Please consider joining our mission. In return for a few hours each week you’ll receive a tremendous sense of accomplishment.
You can support any number of our departments. Once you have applied online, you will be provided with a full tour that will help you find your “best fit.”
Our weekly volunteer opportunities are four-hour shifts:
Monday - Saturday
9:00 am -1:00 pm
1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
What our volunteers have to say
“By early 2016, I had joined the association and have never regretted it. It has become one of my favorite places to be. My colleagues are a joy to work with. We take care of each other and, as a bonus, we make each other laugh! I'm doing work that is not only a gift to the community I have come to love but it is always cheerful work and lifts my spirits.”
- Connie R. Housewares
