The Piedmont Housing Alliance (PHA), is looking for volunteer assistance in distributing food to vulnerable low-income families and senior citizen residents at Friendship Court, Crozet Meadows, and other affordable housing developments managed by PHA. COVID protocols will be observed in all situations. Volunteer needs include:

  •  sorting, boxing, and delivering food to residents of the Crozet Meadows apartments on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

Can you help out? If so, please sign up for a shift HERE.


2. City Of Promise

Support students in Charlottesville during this unprecedented time of "Zoom school" by volunteering a few hours a week as a proctor at the City of Promise virtual learning center. City of Promise has an immediate need for volunteer proctors, a second adult who is available onsite as the kids are doing their school work. PPE provided. Those interested in volunteering may contact High School Pathway Coach Jermaine Dias.


3. Alliance for Interfaith Ministries (AIM) Secure Seniors Program

AIM is urgently seeking donations for their Secure Seniors Program. This program is specifically for seniors in the community who have recently been homeless or are in danger of becoming homeless. Due to the ending of both the additional unemployment benefit and moratorium on evictions at the end of this month, the need is great and anticipated to skyrocket. Here's how you can help:

  • Select from the list of needed items LINKED BELOW.
  • Notify the AIM office (434 972 1704) and let them know when you plan to drop off your items.                                                                    (Address: 1807 Emmet Street North, Suite 6A)
  • Call again when you arrive; you may leave items outside the door.
