Volunteers are an important partner in ministering to the homeless and hurting in our community! Each year, God blesses us with hundreds of compassionate people who wish to serve. Please read below to learn about the holiday opportunities we have available this year.
Please note: Our Gobbles to Go Thanksgiving and Christmas volunteer opportunities are now full. 

If you must complete court-ordered or attorney-advised community service hours, contact the Raleigh Rescue Mission store and Donation Center at 919.878.7117.  We hope you will find a great sense of satisfaction in partnering with Raleigh Rescue Mission.  Email questions to Geia Williams, geiaw@raleighrescue.org or call 919.828.9014 ext. 126.
