Volunteering
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
5,000 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
darnold@blanchethouse.org. Thank you in advance for your willingness to serve and
become part of the Blanchet House family of volunteers!
