La Puente’s office of Volunteer Coordination strives to connect people to their community through service. We create an environment where volunteers are exposed to issues of social justice and are engaged in projects that support La Puente programs and the Alamosa community.
Why do we need Volunteers?
Volunteers help make our work possible by tackling a variety of projects that otherwise would not get done without them! This in turn makes an impact, at a much greater scale, on the lives of those who need assitance. We rely on the dedication and skills of people from all walks of life because we believe everyone has the gift of their skills to share.
How do Volunteers meet needs?
Work groups engage in a variety of projects (i.e., cooking meals at our shelter, sorting through donations at our Rainbow’s End Thrift Stores, gardening with VEGI, serving as a Big Buddy at PALS, painting one of our Adelante homes, or updating and renovating La Puente properties). These projects help better meet the needs of those we serve. Community volunteers add needed people power during peak periods, like busy spells at the foodbank or the thriftstore, or during events like our Thanksgiving Dinner or Christmas Party both held annually at the Shelter.
