How to Volunteer at The Open Door
There are multiple ways to get involved with volunteering at The Open Door. Below are just a few examples. If you have a specific volunteer idea in mind or want to learn even more, you can always reach out!
Whether it’s onsite at our building on 3000 Ames Crossing Road to help in the Eagan Pantry and Warehouse or offsite at a Mobile Pantry food distribution, volunteering as an individual is one of our most popular options.
Even if you sign up as an individual, you are working on our volunteer team. It is a great way to connect with an organization, meet new people AND give back.
This is a great option for businesses and organizations to volunteer and give back together. It’s great team building and bonding. This is also a great give back activity for families or friends, especially around the holiday season!
Groups are incredible help with morning food sorting in the warehouse, at offsite Mobile Pantry food distributions, and in The Open Door’s gardens (a seasonal option) assisting with general upkeep, composting, and more!
