Thank you for your interest in lending a hand at House of Ruth! Over the years, volunteers have enriched the lives of the women and children at our 15 programs.
Due to the spread of the COVID-19 Delta variant, our priority is firmly fixed on keeping House of Ruth clients and staff healthy. As a result, House of Ruth has suspended all volunteer opportunities until further notice.
We sincerely appreciate your generosity and hope that we can continue to work together to overcome these unprecedented challenges. In the meantime, here are some other great ways to support the House of Ruth:
Workplace Holiday Presents Drive: Every year during the holiday season, we collect a list of presents the kids at our family programs want that year. Consider hosting a holiday drive with friends and family or at your workplace to help fulfill our holiday gift shopping list!
Host a Fundraiser for House of Ruth: Many individuals and groups in the community have organized their own fundraising efforts on behalf of House of Ruth. If you’d like to raise money for House of Ruth, please email firstname.lastname@example.org describing your idea for raising money.
We’ve received donations from children who set up a lemonade stand, groups of friends who have gathered at a potluck or cocktail party, Zumba/dance workshops, benefit performances of many kinds, and birthday celebrations where gifts to House of Ruth were encouraged. Student groups, from day care programs and elementary schools to colleges and universities, have used a variety of approaches to raise funds for the women and children at House of Ruth.
