Be part of the solution. Join us in ensuring our community members have their basic needs met.

BOLO is run entirely on the generosity of our volunteers, donors and supporters.   Think of us when you’re cleaning out your closets or pantry as we are always accepting (and encouraging!) new inventory in both the Food Pantry and Gabriel’s Closet.  

We also always have a need for extra hands-- between the Food Pantry, Gabriel’s Closet, Colden Community Farmers Market and BOLO’s special events, there is no shortage of demand for volunteers.  

We welcome you to join us in helping us fulfill our mission to provide basic needs for those who need it most.  Whether you have a lot or a little time or donations to offer, we are grateful for anything you can commit.
