Volunteer Opportunities for Individuals and Groups

East End Cooperative Ministry could not operate without the help of volunteers in every service and program we provide. Every day, we rely upon selfless volunteers who give their time, their energy, and their talents to help their neighbors. See below for more information on specific ways that you can help. To schedule a volunteer service project or learn more, contact Tracy Hudson, Volunteer Coordinator.
