Peace Neighborhood Center has an ongoing need for volunteers in many capacities. We would love to work with you to find a good fit within our existing programs.
In addition, if you are interested in larger, one-time projects such as landscaping and grounds maintenance, please call Bonnie Billups, Jr. at 734.662.3564.
**IMPORTANT NOTICE about School Year
In order to protect our program participants, staff, and volunteers during this unprecedented pandemic, Peace has made the decision to temporarily suspend all Youth Programs volunteers at this time. We will reassess this decision in 2021, so please check back on this page for updates. Please know how much we appreciate your interest in volunteering and your investment in the children of our community!
While we are not able to provide volunteer opportunities with children at this time, Peace is requesting volunteers to help out with Friday food distribution and Monday/Thursday food delivery. See below for more details!
Born out of the need to more quickly and efficiently distribute perishable food items, Peace has been partnering with Food Gatherers for a weekly produce distribution since 2011. Every Friday morning, a diverse population of people from the Washtenaw County community come to Peace to have a choice of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as other items such as bread, desserts, and healthy snacks. The produce distribution at Peace began as a temporary, voucher based program. Today it is an open choice distribution that serves on average 40 families each week. Thank you to our partners at Food Gatherers for helping us meet this need.
As of September 2020, Peace has openings for volunteers to help with our weekly Friday food distribution and Monday/Thursday lunch delivery. While we are not able to provide opportunities to volunteer with children at this time, signing up to volunteer during food distribution or delivery will work to ensure that our staff are able to support our program participants while they engage in virtual learning.
