Volunteers are the heart of our organization.
Through the caring and compassionate spirit of our volunteers, Share provides assistance to more than 10,000 people in Clark County each year. Annually, 2,600+ dedicated volunteers donate 26,650+ hours of time to supporting Share’s mission. We could not do all of what we do without our Volunteer Team – this team is a part of who we are and what we do.
Share was founded in 1979 by a group of volunteers whose compassion inspired them to take action to create this organization and help those in need in Clark County. Over the years, Share’s programs have expanded to meet the needs of a growing community. As our services have increased, so has our need for assistance from volunteers like you!
Our mission: Share believes every person counts. Together we pursue a stronger community by building relationships, advocating for equitable access to housing and food stability while empowering every individual to grow and thrive.
How Share is Facing COVID-19
Volunteer Health & Safety Guidelines (Updated March 12, 2022)
- Mask wearing will be optional for all volunteers working in spaces that have enough room for physical distancing (ie our warehouse, hot meals kitchen, outdoors).
- If meeting in a smaller room or working in a confined space with another volunteer or staff member that chooses to stay masked, you also should wear a mask (keep masks nearby).
- At this time, we will suspend the COVID-19 vaccination requirement for volunteers.
- Utilize hand washing and hand sanitation stations throughout your shift.
- Wear gloves when preparing food.
- If you are ill, please stay home until you are healthy. You may cancel your shift or volunteer activity on your volunteer account or by contacting Molly Evjen at email@example.com.
- If a volunteer visits a site for Share business that has stricter guidelines, Share volunteers will follow the guidelines for that site
Keep in mind that as the situation changes so will our policy. We closely follow Kaiser, CDC, State and County recommendations.
Please assess for yourself whether or not it is safe for you to volunteer on site at this time. We understand if you are not able to return to volunteering just yet. Those that are able to help are welcome and truly appreciated. Share’s programs thrive because of your support – thank you!
