Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteers are essential to the success of West End House.  Last school/program year, 350 volunteers dedicated their energy and talents to supporting our programming – contributing over 2,500 hours of hard work to our programs.

Currently we are offering the following volunteer opportunities within our Family Food Program

Grocery Delivery Driver Volunteers

Deliver groceries bi-weekly to households located inside or outside the Allston-Brighton area. Drivers will commit to a regular 2-hour slot every other Wednesday of the month (typically the 1st and 3rd Wednesday). Full details and instructions can be found here. If interested please contact Sarah MacPherson at 617-870-7513 or smacpherson@westendhouse.org.

Grocery Unloading and Packing Volunteers

Help us get ready for the upcoming week of grocery delivery by packaging boxes with frozen food items for local families and organizing non-perishable food items. Volunteers will sign up for a 2 hour shift (9:30am to 11:30am or 10:30am-12:30pm) on select Saturdays. We ask that each shift consist of at least 2 people. To keep people safe, each shift will only allow members of the same household / those sheltering in place together. Gloves, masks, and hand-washing facilities will be provided. Full details and instructions can be found here. If interested – please sign-up for a Saturday shift here.

If you or your group would like to get involved, please contact Community Engagement Coordinator Sarah MacPherson at 617-870-7513 or smacpherson@westendhouse.org
