Group or Family opportunities

Coordinate a volunteer event that’s rewarding to you and meaningful to your organization. Interested groups should contact our Community Engagement Staff (763-489-7505 or getinvolved@iocp.org) to share more about their group size, schedule and area of interest. Here are some examples of how groups support our mission:

  • Volunteer as a group in our food shelf assisting our families, restocking our shelves and bagging groceries. Age 14 or older. Weekday mornings and afternoon shifts available.
  • Volunteer as a group in our store, Resale Select, receiving and sorting donations. Group events can happen during store hours, Monday-Saturday.
  • Help sort through donated school supplies and pack up grade-specific bags of supplies for our youth. Shifts available in August. Middle school, high school and adults welcome.
  • Volunteer at the annual school supply distribution and resource fair! Adults welcome.
  • Volunteer at our Holiday Gift Program registration to help families check in, sign up and record their family’s gift ideas for the sponsorship program. October. Adults welcome.
