Volunteer Job Board

Here are some of our current volunteer opportunities for Summer 2012.  Please contact us if you are interested in getting involved!

Serve a Meal

Every day, we serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner to many people - we are currently averaging 2,300 meals per day! We can't do it with the help of faithful volunteers, though. We need a lot of help to prepare meals and serve them to our guests.

Our greatest need right now is volunteers to serve breakfast, as well as people to serve on Sundays. If you can help, please contact Erin Hennings at ehennings@urm.org

Kids Freestyle - Gym Activities

Monday-Friday, from 5-6pm you can come connect with our kids in the gym! Right now we have nearly 100 kids living at Union Rescue Mission. Get to know them over basketball, jumping rope or a game of freeze tag.

You can come individually or bring a group. If you are interested in offering something more 'organized' than just free time in the gym such as a basketball tournament, or an "Olympics Day", give us a call - we would love to work with you in setting up something fun for our kids!

Water Walks

Anytime it's 85 degrees or hotter, we take to the streets of Skid Row to pass out cold bottled water. Water Walks are help Monday-Fridays at 3:00pm. To sign up for Water Walk Text Alerts, email your cell number to ehennings@urm.org with "Water Walk" in the subject.   

Movies on the Roof

Every Thursday night this summer,  starting June 28th,  we will show movies on our roof for the guests at URM! Help provide snacks, serve popcorn and drinks, and enjoy a night of fun with our guests of all ages!

If you are interested in joining us for a movie night, or have a group that would like to sponsor one of the nights please contact Alex Cornejo at acornejo@urm.org or  213-673-4860.

Have an Idea?

If you have a great idea of something you would like to do for URM and our guests, give us a call! We would love to speak with you about your ideas. Contact Alex at 213-673-4860 or acornejo@urm.org.
