The volunteers at MEND are the lifeblood of the agency. MEND is committed to remaining a volunteer-driven organization, so that its donations and income go directly to the needy recipients. As a result, administrative and fundraising costs are less than 6% of MEND’s total revenue. This is possible only through the assistance of the dedicated volunteers who give so freely of themselves to MEND.
To volunteer at MEND, please click here to fill an application form. After the online application form is completed, follow the instructions to schedule a volunteer orientation. Orientations are offered two times per month. Orientations are held in English and Spanish.
PLEASE NOTE: Application and ID must be provided before you can attend an orientation session. Orientation is by appointment only.
