Volunteers are the heart of our organization.
Through the caring and compassionate spirit of our volunteers, Share provides assistance to more than 10,000 people in Clark County each year. In 2018, 28,302 hours were provided by 2,884 volunteers dedicated to supporting Share’s mission. We could not do all of what we do without our Volunteer Team – this team is a part of who we are and what we do.
Become a Volunteer Today!
If you are volunteering as part of a group, we encourage you to download, print and distribute the Share Volunteer Application & Service Agreement to members of your group, as each person will need to have a completed application before volunteering.
Volunteer applications must be renewed every two years.
Please note: If, as a volunteer, you will be handling, preparing or serving food for our Hot Meals program, the following videos (produced by Oregon Food Bank) must be viewed.
Take the Next Step
It is an important priority of Share to place you, individually or as a group, where you will enjoy your volunteer time the most. We want you to be engaged in our mission in a way that fulfills your need to volunteer and to use your skills and experience to provide the greatest benefit to our clients.
Please take some time to review our Volunteer Manual to learn more about volunteering with us:

Our current volunteer opportunities are available here: Volunteer Service Opportunities. After you have found at least one volunteer opportunity that suits your needs and fits your availability, take the next step to becoming a member of our Volunteer Team by completing a Share Volunteer Application & Service Agreement on-line.
Once your application and worker agreement has been received and processed, the Volunteer Office staff will contact you to go over your application, schedule you and/or your group, and follow up with the information you will need for your first volunteer day. Please allow at least three days for processing your application.
If we do not have a volunteer service opportunity at the time you apply, we will notify you of this and call you with the first available opening. Applications are kept on file for a minimum of 12 months.
Share can not accomplish its mission without our dedicated volunteers. While our clients directly benefit from your time and talents, we hope that your connection with Share will be an equally rewarding experience.
If you have any questions, please call Dellan Redjou, Director of Volunteers & Community Resources, at (360) 952-8228.
