We love smiling faces and helping hands. In fact, TEAM depends on them. Every year hundreds of our volunteers donate thousands of hours to help those in need.
TEAM has a variety of volunteer opportunites for individuals and groups of all ages. If you would like to join our team of volunteers, or want more information, send us an email with our quick contact form. We look forward to learning more about you – and in the meantime, we hope you’ll take a moment to meet some of our volunteers!
Assistance Ministry Team
Casework is at the heart of our ministry at TEAM. Our volunteer caseworkers interview and qualify clients for the assistance that TEAM provides, e.g. food, rent, utilities, gas vouchers, clothing, and medical vouchers. Our ministry is currently open two days a week, Tuesday and Thursday, from 10 am – 2 pm. Caseworkers may make a commitment to either Tuesday, Thursday or both days. Basic qualifications are dependability and a heart to serve those in need. Training is provided.
Food Pantry Team
Our food pantry team helps with unloading deliveries, organizing and stocking the pantry, and repackaging bulk food and toiletries into smaller sizes. Our food pantry team also shops and bags groceries for our clients. The pantry is open during ministry hours – Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 am – 2 pm. Volunteers can work either Tuesdays or Thursdays or both days.
Resale Shop Team
If you enjoy a good thrift store or bargain hunting adventure, then you’ll love our resale shop. Our volunteers do it all – from unpacking donations to sorting, sizing, pricing, organizing and stocking. The TEAM Resale Shop is open Tuesday – Saturday from 10 am – 6 pm. You can sign up to work a few hours once a week, twice a month, or whenever it fits your schedule.
Administrative and Event Team
If you want to show off your skills, learn a new skill, or take on a volunteer position with some creative possibilites, then join our administrative and event team. This team does a little bit of everything – marketing, event planning, graphic design, social media engagement, grant writing, fundraising, IT/website maintenance, and building maintenance. Volunteer hours are flexible and, depending on your interest, you can even work from home.
Community Garden Team
For those that like to get their hands dirty, we need volunteers who can help out for an hour each week in the community gardens – planting, weeding, tilling soil, and harvesting fresh vegetables for the food pantry. The volunteer gardeners meet for an hour every Thursday morning at the community gardens at Tomball UMC. No gardening experience is required. The gardening hours change depending on the season – 8:30 am – 9:30 am in the summer months and 9 am – 10 am in the winter months. Be sure and check out Tomball Community Garden’s Facebook page for their latest updates and photos of their weekly harvest!
