Current Opportunities

Below is a list of our current volunteer opportunities for individual, long-term volunteers. If you are interested in one of the opportunities listed, fill out our online volunteer application! If you don’t see something here that fits your skills, passions, or availability, email Bethany to discuss other possibilities.

Thank you for your interest in serving the Westown community!



Food Pantry Volunteer – Volunteer to work with a team to assemble orders from our neighbors, take phone and in-person orders or stock pantry shelves – or all three! Spanish speakers are a plus. Please fill out our volunteer application if interested.

Food Donation Driver – Volunteer to pick-up food donations from local partners/stores in Grand Rapids, and bring them back to our food pantry. Tuesday and Thursday drivers are needed to deliver pantry orders to neighbors! If you have a large vehicle, this would be helpful. If not, we can provide use of a vehicle after proper clearance.

Youth Learning Support Program – Volunteers needed to guide elementary students as they navigate online learning. Mon-Thur full and half-day opportunities between 8am – 3pm.



*Please note that The Other Way Ministries must complete a background check for all volunteers.
