Studies have shown that volunteering is good for your mental and physical health. We always welcome new volunteers, be it individual or group volunteering. PD is not limited in any sense in the services it provides. Our fundamental goal is to meet the needs of those less fortunate in any way possible. Whether that means through weekly food, clothing, & toiletry kit preparation-distribution or through housing assistance and job facilitating, PD is there. But what is more powerful and needed most of all is an open heart. At PD we always say that " We are dealing with empty hearts, not empty stomachs". Spending time with and learning from the people we meet is, by far, the most important service we provide. Check our Chapters page for a PD near you.
Establishing a PD chapter is not an activity to be undertaken lightly. The strength of the organization as a whole depends on each chapter creating and sustaining an active, growing presence in its community. To initiate a chapter, please Contact Us.
