Listed below are some of the ways you can volunteer. This is not an exclusive list and as always, we are willing to work with you if there is another volunteer opportunity you would be interested in fulfilling.
Assist our staff with welcoming our guests into shelter and tasks to keep our place running smoothly. Laundry, cleaning and lots of listening. Evenings 5:30pm-7:00pm; 7:30pm-9:30pm or later evenings. We are flexible to your schedule and even better would be to make a weekly or monthly committment.
Assist our staff in the morning when our guests are departing. Mornings 7am-9am.
Want to get your family or co-workers involved in volunteering? Once a month we could use some help with deep cleaning each of our shelter rooms. Flexible hours and days.
Come into the shelter when it’s “quiet” to help keep our shelter in good working order. You might fold towels, re-label clothing or sort food items. Weekdays 9:00am – 5:00pm, flexible hours and we can work to your schedule.
Have a large family or are you part of a group/organization? Then get together and provide a meal for the winter cold shelter that serves 70 or for the summer shelter program that serves 30 men. These meals are can be served buffet style or a brown bag for our guests. Meals need to be onsite in winter by 5:30 pm and in the summer can be dropped off in the evening between 5-6pm. You and your group can stay and serve our guests or you can just drop off the meal during the designated time listed above. You can sign up directly by calling ESNKY directly at (859) 291-4555 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to get detailed on instructions.
