The mission of Gaithersburg HELP is to provide individuals and families in the Gaithersburg area with emergency assistance to resources that are available, and to provide information and referrals to other organizations and agencies. We accomplish this mission through the hard work of our volunteers and the generosity of our donors.
Gaithersburg HELP is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing emergency food and infant supplies, transportation and financial assistance for medical prescriptions and other emergency needs.
It is an amazing company doing amazing things for the community. The work is clearly explained to you during training and there is always someone to help (via email or phone) if you need it. Scheduling is done from within the comfort of your own home and it keeps you extremely busy for the one week a month that you do volunteer work as a transportation scheduler. I really love this volunteer job and do not plan on leaving anytime soon.
Gaithersburg HELP is a local community organization managed solely by volunteers. This group not only provides food for families in the Gaithersburg and Montgomery Village area, but also provides infant supplies as well, which is something not always offered by food banks. In addition to the food and infant needs, this volunteer group tries to offer various other services to the community and is a great asset to these communities.
Every person I've met while volunteering here has their own job and family, but they've taken time out of their own lives to help support this organization that does so much for our community.
