How to Help


Volunteers are essential to our operations at the Heart Ministry Center. Having access to trained volunteers allows the center to have an even greater impact in our community.

Volunteers are needed to:

  • Sort and stock donations
  • Clean
  • Operate food pantry
  • Maintain the grounds
  • Make food pantry bags and more

We want our volunteers to feel that their time is valued, their input is appreciated and their service has made a difference in the lives of people throughout our community.

To volunteer your time and talents, please register online, or contact Alicia Rodriguez at (402) 383-0528.
