Dallas Hope Charities


We Need You! 

***Before getting started, please scroll down and click on the links of Volunteer Needs to see the help we need here at Dallas Hope Charities***

Help us help those who have lost their jobs and are simply looking to put food on the table for their families. Our food pantry will be busier than it's ever been, and the result is that we could use an extra hand. We'll keep you safe, and you'll help keep families fed.

We can use volunteers who can stand, stoop and lift. No symptoms of illness will be allowed on site. Masks and gloves will be recommended on site.
