Volunteer NOW!

SnowCap volunteers make a difference for their neighbors in need.  They feed over 8,000 people per month.  This involves food drives, picking up and delivering food, sorting food donations, stocking shelves, packing bags.  It also means driving trucks, weeding the garden, working on committees and interviewing clients.  There is also administrative work to do; data entry, writing newsletter articles, thank you letters and sending reminder postcards. 

Thanks to this network of over 1,000 volunteers children go to bed with full tummies, seniors are not forced to choose between heating or eating and families can gather around a dinner table to share their day. 

If you think you have what it takes to help a neighbor in need, print the volunteer application found on the volunteer tab of this website.  You will find it under the red letters Volunteer Time.  If you have questions about volunteering you can contact Nate at .

Donate your empty bottles and cans.  This may seem small, but  volunteers are turning these empties into hundreds of dollars each month.  Remember this as you clean up after holiday parties.

Donating a Vehicle to SnowCap is easy. You can go to and fill out the online form. Select SnowCap in the drop down menu to ensure your donation makes it to us. If you would rather SnowCap submit your donation, please contact our office to get started at 503.674.8785 ext. 1017.

Cash donations also help. Use the button on this page to send a donation that will fill a struggling family's dinner table now.  

Please see either the "Donate" tab or "Need Help?" tab on our website for information about hours of operation for each department.

Changes have taken place at SnowCap and we want you to know about them! 

Starting April 1, 2015, SnowCap Community Charities began allowing monthly visits, up to twelve in a year. Due to generous donations of food and an increase of volunteer help, we felt able to make this change.

If circumstances change, if food or volunteer labor do not stay at current levels, we will need to reduce the number of allowable visits.  However, we would not have made this change if we did not feel confident about our ability to follow through with it. 

Should you have any questions, please feel free to call Deontrel Hill at 503-405 4926. 

Nadaka Nature Park is now open in our area!

Our auction raised $119,000.00 to help the needy in East Multnomah County this year!

Thank you to all our supporters and to those who were able to join us last night to set a record for seats sold! We had a total of 352 guests register this year, more than any prior year.  And of course SnowCap could not put on such a successful event without our volunteers, so a big thank you goes out to all the volunteers that helped make this possible!  Thank you all, and here's to another year of helping those in need!
