How to volunteer remotely at Pathways!



A message from Ann Stoddard, Volunteer Coordinator

Dear Pathways Volunteers,

We miss you!

We miss seeing you and we have been constantly thinking of you!

In fact, we have been planning how to reach out to you to let you know just how much we appreciate every one of you: our valuable volunteers.

We want to send you a heartfelt Thank You for all your kind words, the countless hours volunteering and supporting us so we can be a safe place where our community can turn to when they need housing and food.  You do so much for Pathways and we truly thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

We hope you will take a few minutes to open and read this document I created for you:
60 Reasons Why Pathways of Hope Loves our Volunteers!

Remote Volunteering!

We want you to feel connected to us during this strange time so we have created several virtual remote opportunities that you can do to help others in need from the safety of your own home. You can pick one activity, several, or all of them. Please click on each link for instructions:

Making School Backpacks – You can help ensure the students we serve are set up for success during the new school year.

Making Summer Care Kits PDF – You can help to assemble summer care kits from the comfort of your own home, office or school as a Virtual Volunteer.

Making Hygiene Kits PDF – You can help ensure the folks we serve have the hygiene items necessary to stay safe and healthy.

Making Family Welcome Kits PDF – The family welcome kits you make will be distributed to the families
living in Pathways of Hope’s shelters.

Cleaning & Laundry Care Kits PDF – These are a great support to folks in our shelter and in new homes of their own.

Shelter Personal Care Kits PDF – Help us provide basic needs items to support the people we serve.

Card Making Kits PDF – You can make beautiful and fun blank cards as a gift for the people we serve.

Card of Encouragement Kits PDF – You can make cards of encouragement to the people we serve.


Stay in touch!

We understand how hard it is to not be able to socialize with your friends and family, but our main wish is for you to stay safe and healthy. Our hope is for you to be able to volunteer onsite again soon and we can’t wait to see you!

In addition to our emails with updates you can follow us on social media. We are frequently posting lots of fun pictures of the staff at The HUB and shelters. Send us a message anytime on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or email! We want to hear from you!!!

Again, thank you for everything you do to support Pathways and the people we serve!

With gratitude,

Ann Stoddard
