Volunteer Opportunities

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

Help us be the hands and feet of Jesus here in Wichita.  CarePortal is in need of volunteers in the following areas.  If you’re interested in helping out simply fill out the form below the job descriptions. If you are unsure how you’d like to help, please fill out the form and we will find a role that best fits your gifts.

 

All Care Portal team members will work with our Care Portal Point Person (Katie). We can determine if emails/phone calls are sufficient or possible team meetings are needed to communicate within the team.

FILLED – Browse garage sales and Facebook Marketplace and shop for dressers, bed frames, and other regularly requested items. Work with Inventory Manager to see what items are in storage and what items we might acquire more of to maintain good inventory.

FILLED – Go out and shop for specific items when money is given and items aren’t readily available in our storage. This would require going to various stores to purchase items. Looking for sales, coupons, and deals would be great as well! This person might also reach out to local vendors to purchase mattresses on a regular basis, as beds are the number one requested item in Care Portal.

Bed Build Coordinator
Bed Build Coordinator

Beds are still the most requested item for Care Portal and bunk beds are great for sleeping multiple people in small spaces. This person would help acquire lumber and supplies, organize build days, and help ensure beds are ready to go for deliveries. We’d like to consider doing two bed builds a year – maybe March and September.
