We are open Tuesday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and Saturday from 10am to 2pm. We ask that volunteers commit to a weekly four-hour shift for a minimum of three months; however, exceptions can be made. A letter of reference can be provided upon completion of 30+ hours of service.

Special Event Volunteers (Short Term):

A group from your organization can volunteer as a team to represent Harvest Project at a community event. Grow your team-spirit while you give back to your community. Ask us about upcoming opportunities to volunteer.
