Person to Person relies on its dedicated volunteers to make its programs come to life–from our three food pantries, Door2Door mobile food delivery, clothing center, and at our main site. Our success depends on each and every one of you.
Volunteers are the engine that drives everything we do. And more importantly, volunteers are an extension of our P2P community, whether you join us for one day or every day. Kind and compassionate service to others is at the heart of what we do on the P2P TEAM (Together Everyone Achieves More).
Each year volunteers share thousands of hours of time with P2P. In 2019, 4,731 volunteers shared more than 65,000 hours of their time with P2P and our clients.
We welcome individual volunteers, social groups, and businesses — there are opportunities for everyone that wants to help at all three of our sites: Darien, Norwalk and Stamford.
The majority of our day to day volunteers are individuals, that often become more like family.
Individual volunteers may choose to share their time for one hour as a Door2Door delivery driver, a few hours helping to stock our food pantries, time sorting and organizing in our clothing center, or whatever a volunteer’s interest is.
Many hands are great for larger projects, such as organizing our clothing center, sorting food donation after a food drive, site improvement projects, and annual events like our winter coat drive and giveaway.
Social groups can be a group of friends, a community group, church group, or youth group. Have fun together and do good work!
P2P is fortunate to benefit from the support of businesses of all size — financially, in donated goods, and with service time. Volunteering is a great way for businesses to boost employee morale, gather teams for an outing, and provides a way to give back to the community.
Hosting a Drive
Hosting a drive is a way to get even more people involved — friends, family, co-workers, and extended community.
We welcome drives for food, clothing, personal care items, infant gear, and more. Have an idea or would like to talk to someone on our team about setting up a drive for P2P? Contact Juri Garone at jurigarone@p2pHelps.org. Thank you!
