    Individuals and Families

    We encourage individuals and families to volunteer with Sunshine Division.  From volunteering at an event, to packing emergency food boxes in our warehouse, volunteers play a vital role in the success of our organization. To work in our active warehouse, children volunteering must be 14 years of age or older for safety reasons.

    Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@sunshinedivision.org for more information and to schedule a volunteer opportunity.

    Corporate and Community Groups

    Volunteering at Sunshine Division is a great team-building experience for groups of various sizes. Whether you are a large corporation or a small club, your group will work together on a hands-on project that helps families in the Portland area. We ask that groups not exceed 20 people, based on our space and staffing limitations.

    We can almost always accommodate groups that want to volunteer.  Activities vary based on current needs – packing emergency food boxes, sorting food, sorting clothing, even painting projects. Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@sunshinedivision.org for more information and to schedule a volunteer opportunity for your group.

    Group volunteering can happen almost anytime, including weekends. Please contact us at least one month in advance to schedule your volunteer time.

    Volunteering at Events

    Sunshine Division organizes several food and fundraising events in the community throughout the year. Volunteers play a key role in making these events run smoothly. Events are varied and include: concerts, food drives, community partnership nights, golf tournaments, and auctions.

    Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@sunshinedivision.org for more information and to schedule a volunteer opportunity.

    Volunteering in the Warehouse

    If you are looking for a regular opportunity, at either our SE Stark Street or N Thompson Street locations, during our business hours Monday through Saturday, please contact us. Possibilities include: working in our clothing room, handing food out to clients, sorting food, and more. We conduct background checks on all volunteers who will be in our warehouse.

    Please contact the Volunteer Coordinator at volunteer@sunshinedivision.org for more information and to schedule a volunteer opportunity.

    We love our volunteers!
