Volunteers Upkeeping Playground


Volunteering at the Muskegon Rescue Mission means more than just gifting time. It means clothing the needy, feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, demonstrating the love of Christ, and rescuing the broken.

Not only are the homeless and needy touched by the compassion of our volunteers, but the volunteers’ lives are also touched. Serving others is one of life’s greatest privileges. Reaching out to the least, the last, and the lost in a personal way that says, “I care about you” brings encouragement to our residents and staff. Whether it’s serving a meal, tutoring a student, or helping at our thrift store or processing center – volunteers make a difference in the lives of people.

No matter what your skill set, we have a volunteer opportunity for you or your group. Are you well organized? Good with children? Are you willing to serve meals? Would you lead a chapel or help in our food pantry? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions simply complete the appropriate application below.
