SPARC Hope

At SPARC Hope our purpose is to provide support, encouragement and guidance to single parents in the pursuit of identifying life choice options that enhance their opportunities for career advancement and independence.

One of the biggest monthly expense for parents is grocery & household goods shopping, so here at SPARC Hope we try to alleviate as many of those costly expenses as possible for our clients and their families.

One way we do this is by offering each client a shopping day in our pantry once a month to offset the cost of their grocery expenses. Our pantry includes almost everything your local small grocery would carry. In addition to volunteer working in the pantry, donations are always welcome.

How can you help?

Food Pantry Volunteers- We are looking for a handful of regular volunteers who can come in weekly or bi-weekly and assist in the food pantry. This will need to be an ongoing team who can run the pantry with minimal supervision and will require training from SPARC Hope staff.

  • Taking inventory of incoming donations
  • Coding and organizing donations
  • Stocking shelves
  • Pulling food items the month before expiration to distribute before expiration
  • Assisting in keeping our pantry up to code (Dare to Care partnership)

Food Pantry Donors -

  • Coordinating pantry drives
  • Donating food and household supplies
  • Promote SPARC Hope pantry needs on your social media pages
Shopping Assistant- We occasionally have clients that have a difficult time getting to the pantry. Either their schedule for the month, or car issues, etc. It is helpful if they can send in their grocery list, have someone come and shop the pantry for them, and then deliver their groceries.

* Note on occasion, there will be some heavy-lifting or physical labor, such as lifting boxes of canned goods or other items. This not an everyday thing and we do have other staff and volunteers in during the week if you are not able to do so.
