WE SHARE HOPE

Image_202105180736

We Share Hope is focused on helping those in need, facing food insecurity with what we are given. The Pantry Pickup volunteer opportunity makes it easy for Rhode Islanders to donate unopened, nonperishable food products so that We Share Hope can help those who are facing the crisis of food insecurity in Rhode Island.

We Share Hope's Pantry Pickup volunteer opportunity will have volunteers traveling a route provided by We Share Hope to pick up pantry donation items in the community and bring them to the WSH warehouse. Volunteers will be assigned a town (of their choosing) and a route each week and must be able to commit to the same day and 4-5 (max) hour timespan each week, Monday-Friday between the hours of 8 and 3.

Must have reliable transportation, must be able to commit to the same day and 4-5 (max) hour timespan each week (Monday-Friday between the hours of 8 and 3), must be able to lift up to 25 pounds multiple times a day. Volunteers will be reimbursed for gas based on mileage of route. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.

Mission Statement

We share what we have been given with those in need.

Description

Comprised of two life-enhancing initiatives, We Share Hope and Hope Market’s mission is to provide food and other necessities for those who need it most in our community.

Thanks to donations from stores, restaurants, and other corporate partners, We Share Hope is one of the leading food rescue missions in the state and has proudly served over 75 non-profit groups in Rhode Island. We have grown from a two-person operation to an organization with over 35 volunteers, an active board, and committed staff who mobilize weekly to bring food and supplies to those who need it most.

We accomplish our mission in two ways:

  1. We provide food deliveries six days a week to non-profit groups in Rhode Island who serve meals to their community members.

  2. We are home to Hope Market, a budget-friendly marketplace in Rumford that provides goods at low cost to under resourced communities. This market allows those who are experiencing difficult times to get the supplies and food they need. Anyone is welcome to visit Hope Market!


Our efforts are sustained through the support of individuals, companies, and foundations who recognize and support our mission and love to pay it forward as much as we do!
