Volunteer

Did you know GPHC is a volunteer-run organization?

All our programs are sustained and supported primarily by volunteers with the help of a small staff. We have a diverse array of volunteer opportunities that range in timing, location, and intensity. To become a volunteer, we ask that you complete our Volunteer Interest Form, email it to info@greaterparkhill.org or drop it off at our office (2823 Fairfax Street) and plan to attend an orientation.

 

Do you have an infant or toddler, but still want to volunteer? Then join us for this special opportunity to  bring your kiddo and volunteer at GPHC!

 

To learn more about our next volunteer orientation/open house,  email us at info@greaterparkhill.org, or call 303-388-0918.

 

Some examples of volunteer opportunities with GPHC:

Newspaper – we need volunteers to help bundle newspapers and we’re always looking for block workers to deliver newspapers.

Food Pantry – we need volunteers to stock, intake, and guide clients through our pantry. Our shifts are 9:30am-1:30pm on Monday and Wednesday of each week.

Weekend Food Program – our weekend food program provides weekend nutritional supplements to school children in Park Hill. We need volunteers to help stuff bags and provide other support as needed. Shifts are Wednesday of each week from 1:00pm-3:00pm.

Special Events – we have several special events throughout the year including the Garden Tour, the 4th of July Parade, and the Home Tour and Street Fair. Please view a descriptions of our events.

Helping Hands Directory – Do you have an interest in helping your Greater Park Hill neighbors garden? Do you have experience gardening or just some helpful hands to loan? If so, please complete this form and we’ll be in touch.

Administrative Assistance – we are looking for a few volunteers to come in during office hours (Monday through Thursday, 9:00am-3:00pm) for an hour or two per week to help with administrative duties.

Specialized Skills – If you have a specialized skill, anything from building databases to teaching sustainability workshops and anything in between, please let us know!

We host volunteer orientations and open houses periodically throughout the year. Please email info@greaterparkhill.org if you have questions.

 

We’d also love to see you at our monthly community meetings: Every first Thursday at 6:30pm at 2823 Fairfax Street. Please note: we do not meet in December or July. A typical agenda includes community introductions, presentations by community organizations, and concludes with board business. To receive the meeting agenda at the beginning of each month, sign up for our monthly newsletter.
