Volunteers for Meals Needed
Neighborhood House is serving meals to children 18 years of age and younger. Children arrive at 3:00 pm for tutoring, games, gym time, and other enrichment activities before the meal is served from 4:00 pm to 4:30 pm.* Meals will be served Monday through Friday. Neighborhood House is looking for volunteers to:
- serve as positive role model
- commit to one afternoon a week, 3:00 pm to 4:45 pm
- serve meals
- supervise activities, games, gym time
The children who come to us for meals typically live in very food “insecure” homes. In addition to food, Neighborhood House also provides a safe haven for kids who would otherwise be on the streets. Please help us to establish and maintain an atmosphere of stability and trust at Neighborhood House. These kids deserve more than a hand out- you can help with them get a hand up. Because this is a vulnerable population, all volunteers will need to pass a background check.
Please share this with whomever you believe might be interested in helping at-risk youth.
*When Peoria School District is closed for summer break, the meal program will be held from 12:00 pm to 2:00.
