Group Volunteering

St. Anthony’s is taking precautions to mitigate the risk of COVID-19. All volunteers are required to wear masks at all times, and all of our volunteer shifts allow for social distancing. Please see our shift calendar for current opportunities. We understand our Dining Room shifts may not be the best fit for everyone, and more volunteer opportunities are coming soon! To receive updates about new shifts as they are available, please fill out this form.

Each year over 600 groups serve at St. Anthony Foundation. Groups come to us from companies, schools, organizations and religious institutions. To schedule your group, please fill out our Group Volunteer Inquiry form so that we may best assist you. Our Group Volunteer Coordinator, Erika Hapa will be in touch with you as soon as possible, usually within 3 business days.
