What type of volunteer opportunities are offered at Three Square?

Volunteer Room 

We value every volunteer for participating in the many aspects of our volunteer room, which is the central operational support for all our programs and services. Including, but not limited to produce and grocery packing for individuals who receive meal assistance and mobile pantries; sorting and packing donated food and non-food items; and office support. You may be standing, bending, lifting and walking on concrete in non-climate controlled areas.

Community Kitchen 

Help pack fresh Kids Cafe® meals to ensure food-insecure children involved in after-school programs receive delicious, nutritious meals they need to thrive. We also pack frozen meals for our agency partners and summer meals for kids. You may be standing and working in an assembly line format for this volunteer activity. 

BackPack for Kids Program 

Help to prepare bags for school-age children who might otherwise go without during weekends and long breaks from school. You may be standing, bending and walking down an assembly line in non-climate controlled areas.

What should I wear to volunteer?

We encourage dressing for the weather as the food distribution will take place outside. Please bring your own face mask; it is required that volunteers wear a face mask throughout the entire volunteer session.

What are your volunteer hours?

Hours are subject to change due to holidays. Please call us at 702 644-3663 x349 to confirm any changes.

Due to COVID-19, we need volunteer support at our offsite distributions. The hours vary depending on the distribution site, so please read the details and description of the activity before scheduling.

Where do I go for my volunteer session?

We are going to be distributing food at several different locations using a drive-thru model to ensure that our neighbors are given safe access to the food that they need. Please note that these volunteer opportunities will not be at Three Square but at the address listed in the details section of the distribution site.

Can I do my community service at Three Square?

Our court-ordered and workers' comp programs are currently on hold due to COVID-19.

We are accepting school community service volunteers at our offsite distributions. Please note that all volunteers ages 10–17 must be accompanied by an adult the entire time for safety reasons at our offsite distributions.

If you have any documentation that needs to be signed by our staff, this can be done by a team member at the distribution site or via email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
