Volunteering

Together We Cope volunteer work makes a big difference

Together We Cope volunteer work can involve unloading trucks

Together We Cope volunteer hours make it possible. It takes many people, many talents and many gifts to help our neighbors stay in their homes when a temporary financial crisis hits.

Food pantry

  • In our food pantry, volunteers make sure hungry families get nutritious food. Our food pantry receives donated food from grocery stores and food drives. Volunteers are needed to sort, clean and ensure that foods meet quality control standards.

Resale shop

  • In our resale shop they sort donated items, organize merchandise, provide excellent customer service, create window displays, stock shelves, perform cashier duties, and many other tasks.

Community fundraising events

  • Together We Cope volunteer assisting at a fundraiser in Tinley ParkAt our special events, they help create an experience the community loves to support. Not sure what you’d like to do, but you know you want to help? Do you have a special skill or interest you’d like to share with us?
