CSC relies on a robust team of volunteers to make and serve meals, sort donations, deliver groceries, cut hair, and connect our clients with crucial services. Over 300 people volunteer at CSC each year, contributing over 8,000 hours in total. We truly couldn’t do this work without our amazing volunteers!

Other Roles

We sometimes need volunteer support with roles including cooking, serving lunch, and sorting clothing donations. Some of these roles require closer contact with CSC staff, volunteers, and members. All positions take place during weekday hours. For more information, please contact Michael Bowman at 503-984-1224 or michaelbowman@cscoregon.org 


Organize a Drive 

Only have a few hours, and want to make a big impact? We need community support to provide all the items our members request - everything from non-perishable food items, to clothing, to pet supplies. One great way to support CSC is by coordinating a donation drive. With the help of your neighbors, colleagues, or members of your place of worship, you can multiply your impact.
