Volunteer Opportunities!


My Friend's Place offers many opportunities to give back!  Whether you want to do give us a couple of hours once a month, once a week, a one shot project or somewhere in between, we can accommodate your needs.  If you have a green thumb, painting, organizing, cleaning,  or like paperwork we have the volunteer opportunity for you!  Please email us below!

Below is a listing of just a few of the things we need.

Regular ongoing opportunities:

  • We host a weekly bingo fundraiser on Friday nights at Seacoast Bingo in Somersworth, we are in need of volunteers here.  Our bingo fundraiser makes up almost one third of our overall budget.  We have six teams so you choose once a week or once every six weeks, for two hours or more.  Jobs include ticket sales, paper sales, calling back bingo's, or even calling the bingo game!  Don't let the word sales fool you, the players know what they want!
  • We are currently looking to add a volunteer to the front office to assist with answering the phones, greeting visitors, some light paperwork like putting admit packets together etc.
  • Mowing the lawn, weeding our many flower gardens, trimming the bushes.

Short term Projects

  • ​​We have several areas in the shelter that need some attention with painting, organizing or sprucing up.
