We have a variety of volunteer opportunities for people of varying abilities, skills, and schedules.

Caring Hands Outreach Center runs on volunteers. We couldn't serve the community without the over 200 volunteers who regularly give their time to mobilize compassionate service towards their neighbors. 

There are lots of ways to serve at Caring Hands. Some of our needs include sorting food donations, assisting visitors to our food pantry, picking up donations from businesses around the community, tending our garden, sorting donated clothing and household items, and providing administrative support in the office. This isn't an exhaustive list. If you have a gift that you want to share with us, please let us know.    

We host a volunteer onboarding event each month for people interested in volunteering at Caring Hands. The next volunteer onboarding will be Saturday, April 20 from 9:30 - 11:00 am. at Caring Hands Center, 602 3rd St SW, Altoona. If you'd like to join us, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator at (515) 967-4533 x6. RSVPs are appreciated but not required.
