Volunteer With Us!

The desire to help other people is a universal one, but with today’s hectic lifestyle it can be a challenge to find the time to help.  But, we like to think of Foothill Unity Center as being a place where a variety of needs are met, including the need to be needed.

Volunteers have always been the heart and soul of Foothill Unity Center and that’s because  we provide so many different options for sharing your time. You’ll decide when volunteering makes sense and we’ll provide you with the training and opportunities you need to lift your spirit.

We host three annual events that make ideal volunteer opportunities for individuals with limited time, family groups or businesses.  Sign up for one, two or three – your help is always appreciated. Tasks include: food sorting, packing boxes, distributing food, guest registration, grocery unloading and more.
•  Thanksgiving Food Distribution
•  Holiday Food and Gift Distribution
•  Back-to-School Clothing and School Supply Giveaway

Calling all Volunteers! 

The National Letter Carrier Food Drive is fast approaching May 14th and we are looking for enthusiastic and  hard working volunteers to help unload mail trucks, sort food collected from the post offices and load unto Foothill Unity Center trucks.  Come join us for an afternoon of fun. Register to volunteer.

Thank You to all the Letter Carriers, staff, volunteers and community support at the Arcadia, Lincoln (included the Altadena, Pasadena and San Marino post offices), Monrovia/Duarte, Sierra Madre sites, what an amazing job!


If you have more time to spare, consider working with us once a month. Our Monrovia and Pasadena offices distribute food to those in need on a weekly basis, your help would be greatly appreciated.  We are also in need of people to help with food drives, food donation pickups, fund-raising projects, food delivery to homebound clients and more.

If you’re looking for an even deeper level of volunteer commitment, daily, weekly or biweekly, we are always in need of help. Bring your time, talents and skills to one of our offices and we’ll put you to work!

The Center holds a general volunteer orientation on the first and third week of each month.  If you’d like to attend one and learn more about how you can help, please call (626) 358-3486 or email volunteer@foothillunitycenter.org.
