Monthly Volunteer Opportunities

If you would like to be involved in a consistent, month-to-month, volunteering opportunity check out Second Saturdays. At various locations each month, we get together to serve the needs of our community!

Through member congregations and other volunteers, we have been able to meet many needs so far. For these events, we respond to the highest need we see in our community and organize accordingly.

If you or a group would like to get together to serve on one of our Second Saturday events, please fill out our form to sign up!

What is it?
The Laundry Love initiative consists of regular opportunities to come alongside people who are struggling financially by assisting them with their laundry. Laundry Love partners with groups and local laundromats in cleaning clothes and linens for low-income or no-income families and person(s).


Why are we doing it?
There are many people in our neighborhood who lack a very simple need: to have clean clothing. This is an opportunity for us to better serve our community!


How Can You Help?
The laundromat is one of the most beautifully diverse places to be.  Spin City Laundry has opened Tuesday mornings as a time to set aside for Laundry Love.  Here’s how it works:

  • Earth Breeze supplies us with laundry detergent sheets (free!)

  • Spin City reserves the use of a block of washers and dryers

  • Congregations and community groups team up to staff each Laundry Love session

    • Pick a Tuesday each month to host the event from 8:30 – noon

    • Collect funds to cover the cost of the machines (about $10/load)

    • Manage the reservation map of machines and apply post it labels to keep track of things

    • Distribute detergent and dryer sheets, feed coins into machines

    • Hang out with folks and get to know each other!

    • Share a snack or a game of cribbage, whatever feels right for you.

    • Monthly commitment preferred.

Please Consider Supporting Chum

There are many ways to support us! A gift of money can help us support all of our programs. A gift of time, through volunteering, can help us complete crucial projects. And donations of warmth, clothing, and shelter help keep folks living outside of shelter alive.
