Sun Life Crew!

Goss International Crew!

My Friend's Place offers many opportunities to give back!  Whether you want to do give us a couple of hours once a month, once a week or somewhere in between, we can accommodate your needs.  If you have a green thumb or like paperwork we have the volunteer opportunity for you!  Please email our Executive Director at sford@myfriendsplacenh.org

Below is a listing of just a few of the things we need.

Regular ongoing opportunities:

  • We host a weekly bingo fundraiser on Wednesday nights at Seacoast Bingo in Somersworth, we are in need of volunteers here.  Our bingo fundraiser makes up almost one third of our overall budget.  We have four teams so you choose once a week or once a month, for two hours or more.  Jobs include ticket sales, paper sales, calling back bingo's, or even calling the bingo game!  Don't let the word sales fool you, the players know what they want!
  • We are currently looking to add a volunteer to the front office to assist with answering the phones, greeting visitors, some light paperwork like putting admit packets together etc.
  • Mowing the lawn, weeding our many flower gardens, trimming the bushes.

Short term Projects

  • ​We have several areas in the shelter that need some attention with painting or sprucing up
  • We are currently seeking someone with some contractor experience who will look at our back porch, we would like to wall in some windows and add cabinet/counter space for additional secure food storage for clients.

Amazon Smile, looks, feels and acts just like Amazon!  The only difference is when you shop smile we get a donation from Amazon.  So keep doing what you already are doing, just do it with a smile on Amazon Smile!  Know that all your shopping is is also making a donation to a good cause!
