Group Volunteers

Group Volunteers

Are you looking to get your corporation, employees or community group INNvolved?  Have your group volunteer for a day at The INN. The Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen in Hempstead can accommodate your group of up to 20-25 people.  It’s a great opportunity for team building, enjoying the camaraderie of the volunteers and helping to give back to the community.


Volunteers assist in preparing and serving the day’s meal, sorting and stocking the pantry and clothing room, as well as clearing and cleaning tables when guests are finished their meal.  The volunteer shift is from 8:30AM – 2:00PM (there are no partial shifts, everyone has to commit to the entire time).


All volunteers participating in this shift must be at least 16 years old. Everyone should dress comfortably and bring a baseball cap or hat to keep your hair back. Ask your volunteers to bring lunch or a snack to have during the break and volunteer meeting, at 11:00AM, which gets everyone prepared for the lunch service.


All group volunteer dates must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance (at least 3-4 weeks for school holidays). All you need to do is to pick a few dates (Monday through Friday) that will work for your group and contact Jason Tessler at or call 516-486-6243 ext. 206 to schedule your day.
