Discover the personal reward of sharing your time while enriching the lives of others.
Sweetwater Mission was founded on volunteer service and it is volunteerism that continues to be the life-giving force that allows us to provide top-quality assistance!
The first step is to attend Volunteer Orientation. We have regularly scheduled Volunteer Orienations each month (see dates below).

IMPORTANT MEMO TO VOLUNTEERS:
While we continue to offer EXPRESS FOOD during this emergency, we must practice safe measures that require a minimal

Special Gift & Holiday Program volunteers are needed to sort and assemble donated items for our School Supplies, Family Easter Baskets, and Warm Coats Warm Hearts programs.
Off-Site Donation Drives help us to supply our clients with basic necessities such as diapers, toiletries, sheets, towels, and winter coats. If you are part of a large group that wants to serve with us, off-site donation drives are a great way to involve everyone. Before and after the drive, bring your group to our facility and take a tour so you can see first-hand how your contribution helps our community.
