Volunteering at WSCAH


Without the help of our volunteers, we would not be able to help to serve the large numbers of people we see each day. The majority of our volunteers are customers who choose to give back by helping with their time. We also have volunteers from the community and from neighboring schools, religious congregations, and corporate groups. Volunteers help bring in food deliveries, stock shelves, bag bread, break down boxes, assist customers, work checkout, and much more.

Our volunteer hours are:

  • Monday 7am – 7pm
  • Tuesday 7am – noon
  • Wed, Thurs, Fri 7am – 5pm

We ask that volunteers commit to serving at WSCAH two consecutive shifts per week within one month, but of course, we welcome you to serve as long as you would like.

For volunteer groups we can only accept 8 people or fewer at a time, and we recommend scheduling well in advance.

Contact Ryan Fajardo, Development and Volunteer Coordinator, at rfajardo@wscah.org or at (646) 284-8927 to schedule your first volunteer day.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
