Donation Center

Volunteers are always needed to help process community donations at our donation center. CAM receives hundreds of donated items a day; we need your help in sorting, cleaning, hanging, and tagging. It’s a busy environment, but our volunteers have a great time!

Food Pantry

Volunteer with our Food Pantry to help area families. The food pantry needs help stocking shelves, packing groceries, and picking up donations of bread and other food items from grocery stores and restaurants.

Special Delivery

The Special Delivery program serves both our senior and disabled neighbors, relying on volunteer drivers to deliver groceries and check in with clients once a month. This is a great way to make a difference by visiting with clients and ensuring that they are doing well.

Administrative Support

Volunteers are needed to provide support in CAM’s main and Operation Jobs offices, and in Volunteer Services. Opportunities include making follow up calls for Operation Jobs, contacting local businesses about job openings, database entry, answering phone calls, and filing.

Assistance Office

Many of our assistance counselors are volunteers! If you’re interested in helping connect our neighbors in need of assistance with CAM’s services, this would be a great role for you.

Especially needed are bilingual volunteers who are willing to receive training to be assistance counselors.

Angels' Attic

Our Angels' Attic resale shop is always in need of volunteers willing to help merchandise, straighten the store, hang clothes, assist customers, work at the front counter, and help as a cashier. If you enjoy working with the public, have good decorating skills, or enjoy merchandising, then this is a great way to share your time!

CAM’s Volunteer Policy for Youth

Cypress Assistance Ministries appreciates young volunteers and the role they play in serving our community! Below are guidelines for volunteering.

Volunteers 16 years and older may volunteer without adult supervision once they complete the volunteer application and tour. No volunteer hours may be completed until these steps have been taken. High School and College Students must work at least 2 hours at a time with a minimum of 10 hours overall.

No children under the age of 16 are eligible to volunteer on an individual basis.

Groups of youths ages 14 and older may be eligible to work in our food pantry with adult supervision. The group must provide one adult for every 5 youths. Group volunteer projects may be available during our regular work hours and should be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the date you wish to work.

Due to space constraints, there will be a limit on the number of people that can work per shift and on the days available to work.

Young volunteers have so much to offer and there are many opportunities to serve that benefit those in need who are served by CAM. For their safety, children under the age of 16 may not volunteer here in the building, but there are great projects to consider holding in other locations.

Holding a food drive, having a bake sale, setting up a lemonade stand, or having school supply drive will benefit many. Try a scavenger hunt for needed pantry items. Host a mock baby shower to collect needed baby items. Build “Flu Season Survival Kits” with over the counter cold medicines. And of course, holding a toy drive to share toys at Christmas is always wonderful.
