Serving the seven-county metro area of Minneapolis-St Paul Minnesota

Volunteer update!

Hello! I’m Kristen Hoplin, the new Volunteer Coordinator with Store To Door. I’m happy to be here and thrilled to be working with such a dedicated group of volunteers. I have a broad background in the nonprofit sector and have spent several years in volunteer management, most recently in New Orleans, LA. I hope to have the opportunity to meet or speak with each of you soon. If you have any questions or concerns, don’t hesitate to contact me. Alternately, if you have great ideas about how we can make our volunteer program even better, I would enjoy talking with you.

We are always looking for new shoppers and order takers. We have a particular need in the fall, as we have many clients who need our services as the winter weather approaches. We have several trainings in the upcoming months for shoppers and order takers. Below are the dates:

  • VOT training: October 5th and November 2nd, 6:00-8:30pm, Rondo Community Library
  • Shopper training: October 21st, November 17th, 8:30-9:45am, St. Paul office
  • If you know of anyone who would be interested in joining our volunteer team, please send them our way!

We are also looking for current volunteers who want to get more involved with Store To Door through our Outreach Committee. The Outreach Committee attends fairs, expos, and presentations on behalf of Store To Door, to reach potential clients, friends, and volunteers. If you’d like to get involved, there will be a meeting for current and potential Outreach Committee members at our St. Paul office, Thursday, November 4th, from 6:00-7:30pm.

Please check back to our volunteer blog, as we will be updating this and our volunteer website more frequently. In the meantime, please contact me at any time at 651-642-1892 ext. 131 or through email at volunteers@storetodoor.org.
