Providing food, shelter, help and hope to Missoula’s homeless and hungry.

Large Group Volunteer Application

For over 40 years, the Poverello Center has provided a necessary safety net for our community members living in hunger and homelessness. An award winning non-profit organization, the Poverello Center provides education, advocacy, and a multitude of services to improve the health, well-being, and stability of people struggling with poverty in Missoula.

Due to limited space, group sizes are limited to 10 people or less at one time. This will ensure that members of your group are consistently busy while volunteering. In addition, this will enable the Poverello Center to utilize your group in a way that meets the needs of the organization and clients.

Is your group larger than 10 people? Consider splitting into smaller groups and serving lunch or dinner over a course of a month. Or hold a supply drive and collect needed items such as toilet paper, cleaning supplies, large garbage bags, or travel size toiletries! Donations are vital for the daily operation of the Poverello Center and your help in collecting needed items is always greatly appreciated.

If you have questions please contact the Volunteer Coordinator via email or phone 406-532-6674.
