Ongoing opportunities

  • Brown Bag Line,  Delivery Driver and Gleaners – We always need volunteers to help fill brown bags with groceries every Thursday and Friday morning at 7:30am sharp, and drivers to deliver them. Join our Glean Team and help us pick fruit and other produce for the program.
  • Thrift Store – Come and join the Grey Bears Thrift Store team! We’re looking for volunteers everyday and especially on weekends to cashier, price items, help with books, crafts and linens, or help in receiving.
  • Bookstore & Online Sales  – We’re looking for volunteers to help in our bookstore, and to evaluate, price and enter donated books and other items for sale on amazon.com and eBay.
  • E-Waste and Computer Electronics Store – We need your tech skills to test and repair donated electronics, audio-video gear, appliances, etc. for resale in our Computer Electronics Store. Run a register, assist shoppers to find the right component, or disassemble computers in our e-waste center.
  • Kitchen Cooks – Help us prepare and serve healthy lunches for seniors and volunteers from our commercial kitchen; especially looking for a Friday lunch chef.
  • Office/Administrative – Help us provide excellent customer service for Grey Bears members and the general public. As the first point of contact, we’re looking for office volunteers to help answer phones, provide information about our programs and respond to member needs.
  • Facilities Maintenance – Projects abound at our 3-acre Chanticleer campus. Your carpentry, electrical and handyman experience would be most appreciated.

You’ll receive a hot lunch and a bag of groceries each day you volunteer (Mon-Fri), and the satisfaction of helping Grey Bears.

Volunteering is the ultimate exercise in democracy. You vote in elections once a year, but when you volunteer, you vote every day about the kind of community you want to live in.”  -Marjorie Moore

“Volunteering at Grey Bears is enjoyable because of the good people who work here. My work is both rewarding and worthwhile. This makes every day fun and interesting and I look forward to coming in and helping out. Thanks for the opportunity!” —Peter S., Santa Cruz
