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.

Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities: 

  • Brrrrr it's cold outside!!  We are collecting hats, mittens and warm socks for our client's children and we need your help!  We need one or two people to head up the collection of these items.  It would mean reaching out to local businesses and churches to ask for their help.  The volunteer who ran it last year will be on hand with helpful hints.  So grab a friend and help us to keep our clients warm this winter!  This is only a once a year commitment! You can email through this email or call BOLO at 941-3550.  If you want to donate there is a collection tote in the welcoming area.

  • Mingle, Mingle, Mingle!  Join the Monthly Mingle Team!  This is a once a month commitment, the  2nd Thursday of the month! get to enjoy a monthly talk and light meal to go along with it!  Can you help us?  We need people to set up the food table and clean up afterward.  Remember many hands means light work.  Again you can email or call us.

  • Cherry Picker: We need volunteers to help during Fall Fest! September 28th, 29th, and 30th promoting a sneak peak of the future home of the Cherry Picker!
