Volunteer Opportunities

TRY plans several annual events that require volunteer support, as well as special projects or events that happen less frequently or on a one-time basis. Please contact staff listed below for more information or to be added to our “on-call” volunteer list.

Angel Tree Holiday Party

Each year TRY plans a major holiday event for children of one or more incarcerated parents, in conjunction with the national Prison Fellowship (www.prisonfellowship.org/about/angel-tree/). TRY utilizes volunteers to help wrap presents and work the event each year. TRY also collects donations of new toys, games, clothing and more for children attending.

Thanksgiving “Basket Brigade”

TRY collects and distributes nearly 300 Thanksgiving “baskets” annually, each containing a turkey and all sides/fixings for a family of 8, most of whom are families with children that have at least one incarcerated parent. Volunteers are used to help hand out baskets on pick-up night.

Board or Committee Service

TRY is committed to nominating board members with a true passion for reentry work, and who may possess skills that support strong governance and oversight for the organization. On occasion, special/ad-hoc event committees are also convened.
