Donating Your Time and Talent

Volunteers in the food pantry

The spirit of volunteerism is alive and well at The Kroc Center. As our community center continues to grow, rewarding volunteer opportunities will continue to evolve. Kroc volunteers are held to the same standards as Kroc employees including application, background check, Abuse and Injury Prevention training, and orientation. Volunteers coach, clean, help with holiday baskets, serve on the advisory board and committees, ring bells during The Red Kettle effort, and much more.

St. Joseph County and its surrounding communities are rich in resources, including professionals, retirees, families and singles who have skills to share and a passion to serve. If you have a special skill or passion-whether it's a knack for playing the piano or an affinity for data entry-or if you simply want to help others, we would love to hear from you. As opportunities become available, we will contact you.

The Kroc Center relies on more than its paid staff to meet the mission of Joan Kroc. Mrs. Kroc was clear in her intent: to be a place where children can learn from one another, individuals can seek personal growth and development, and a place for the community to gather in leisure and fellowship in an environment that embraces the love and acceptance that Jesus Christ teaches us.
