The Blanchet House is deeply grateful for the generosity and support of our many volunteers and benefactors. Our organization depends on the compassion and commitment of volunteers who donate their time and talents to help those in need. Please know that you are helping to provide much more than just food, shelter and clothing – you’re providing hope for all of those in need!
Over 19,000 people volunteer at the Blanchet House on an annual basis, many of whom are high school students from all over the greater Portland-Metro area. The Blanchet House of Hospitality serves between 29,000 - 33,000 meals each month. In 2013 we served more than 341,000 meals to the hungry and homeless, making us one of the largest feeding sites in Oregon. We would not be able to accomplish this monumental task without our army of volunteers.
Our daily operations rely on volunteers who work directly with the Blanchet staff serve three hot meals Monday - Saturday. During a normal shift at the new Blanchet House located in the heart of Portland’s OldTown/Chinatown, volunteers are asked to help plate and serve meals. Other volunteers will assist our staff by helping with clean-up.
If you or your group are interested in making a difference by volunteering, please contact Dennis Arnold at (503) 226-3911 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for your willingness to serve and become part of the Blanchet House family of volunteers!
