Opportunity Details

HomePlate Meals with Youth (age 18+) *MLK 2014*


Hands On Managed projects offer you an opportunity to join a group of volunteers on a done-in-a-day project led by a Hands On Volunteer Leader

Join us in honoring the legacy of Dr. King through meaningful service to our community: "Everybody can be great... because anybody can serve."
-- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

**VOLUNTEERS WILL NEED TO BRING A FOOD ITEM. If this is a hardship for you, please let the Volunteer Leader know. The Volunteer Leader will contact you to tell you what to bring.

HomePlate is a weekly meal program serving young people who are unstably housed in Washington County. We offer them a hot meal, a shower, a movie, games, conversation, and other resources: employment, housing, education assistance.

Supplying dinner is our biggest need. The meal will serve about 40 people, which includes your group and other volunteers. Together, volunteers will prepare a main dish, salad, fruit/vegetable, 1 gallon of milk, and 1 gallon of juice. Dessert and bread are welcome but optional.

We are looking for people who enjoy hanging out with young people, providing a listening ear, and offering positive role-modeling. 


HomePlate supports the positive development of young people experiencing homelessness or housing instability through community building, education, access to services and resources, and youth empowerment. HomePlate offers young people who are unstably housed in Washington County a place to eat a hot meal, take a shower, watch a movie, be listened to, and get resources.
