We Care Volunteers
Volunteer and Partnership opportunities
We are looking for people to come out and serve; you are always welcome no matter what night it is. If you want to you can bring out a side dish, or dessert. You don't need to prepare something yourself- ready made cookies, fresh fruit, breakfast bars, string cheese, and anything that can be carried away to be eaten later (non-perishable) is greatly appreciated.
If you can't make it out to serve, consider donating! Your donation is tax deductible!
You can also help collect weather appropriate garments for those who do not have them...you can organize food donations...we are always in need of non-perishable foods that we use often--(see our list below). We feed 150-300 meals a night, so we go through staples like pasta, and parboiled rice rather quickly. We also serve on disposable plates--so forks, styro-foam plates, and 6oz styro-foam cups are also welcome!
We are currently working on collecting sleeping bags, tents and backpacks for those who are sleeping it rough, in and around Reno and Sparks.
