We love our volunteers. Wesley welcomes corporate, church, social groups and civic organizations to join us in our mission.
We are using Volunteer Houston to help schedule volunteers for the Food Pantry during this busy time. CLICK HERE TO VOLUNTEER.
Our policies have changed during COVID-19 to keep our clients and volunteers safe. We can accommodate groups of up to 10 volunteers for daily, ongoing activities such as visiting the seniors or helping with children in our Early Childhood Education program.
Volunteers are needed to assist with daily activities such as sorting, moving, organizing and assisting clients with food choices. We organize Community Food Fairs in neighborhood parks on the third and fourth Saturdays of the month from 9:30am-noon This is a great opportunity for groups or families. Children ages eight and older are welcome!
Do you have a green thumb? Does burying your hands in the dirt sound therapeutic to you? If so, we need you! Volunteers are needed to maintain our Community Garden. Duties may include watering, weeding, planting, soil preparation, pruning, harvesting etc. Garden hours are Tuesday – Saturday 9:00am – 3:00pm.
Come bring the gift of friendship and fellowship to a senior! Come host a bingo party, sponsor a field trip, assist with arts and crafts, help serve meals, or just come by to chat. The Senior Program runs Monday through Friday 8:30am – 12:30pm. Times may differ for special events and field trips. *This program is currently not running due to COVID-19 precautions.
Early Childhood Education**
We have many great opportunities for groups or individuals to volunteer with our youth. Come read a book, do arts and crafts, mentor kids after school and so much more! Volunteer times are Monday through Friday 9:00 – 10:30am and 2:00 – 4:00pm. *This program is currently not allowing volunteers due to COVID-19 precautions.
Volunteers are needed during after-school hours and summer camp to help arrange group activities and engage with groups of school age children.
**All volunteers working with children must pass a background check
