Additional Volunteer Opportunities

KCM loves for families and groups to get involved with serving our programs. Below please find several options for volunteering that can be accomplished at home, in your church, neighborhood or school

These may be appropriate for children under 13 and for group

Food Drives – Collect food for our food pantries and schedule a time to deliver the food and get a tour of our food pantry.  Click here for a regularly updated list of needed items

Gas Cards – Collect money for gas cards.  One of the biggest obstacles for our clients is the ability to travel to find work. In both of our social service offices we are accepting gas cards to distribute to those clients who meet the stringent guidelines set forth by their case managers.

Furniture/Housewares/Clothing Drives – The KCM resale stores help support our programs, with $.87 of every dollar going back into the programs. This is only possible through the generous donations from our community. We can pick up your donations or you can deliver them to any of our three donations centers. More information can be found here.

Make Cards for Clients – We love it when we can give each client a handmade card of encouragement or birthday card in their food bags.  You can make as many as you like and deliver them to either the food pantry in Katy or Fulshear.

Birthday Bags – We like to provide birthday bags for our kids and are always in need of items.  We like for the bag to include everything you need to have a birthday party including items such as: cake mix, frosting, candles, invitations, balloons, favors, plates and napkins. We are especially in need of items appropriate for teenagers.

Blanket Drives - Collect new or clean, gently used blankets for Crisis victims

Fun bags - collect items for children of Crisis victims  (coloring books, crayons, etc)
