Volunteer at Camp Wild





It's true. Hope starts with wonderful people in our community who want to give back and make a difference.

And there are so many ways to get involved. From working with kids, to serving food, cleaning, repairing or talking to guests, our volunteers make a huge difference and help us to keep our services free for our guests.


And volunteering starts with a click...

You can be a part of something big! And the best part of volunteering is that you don't have to do it alone. You can invite your friends, family, coworkers, civic club, your Sunday School class and others to join you or you can just come alone and make some new friends while helping change lives.

All it takes is for you to click on the OPPORTUNITIES button and explore the many options we have available. If you're ready to take the plunge and want to talk to someone then call us at 301.739.1165 or email us at

Donation Center

(Sorting Room)

We are currently looking for multiple volunteers for our Donation Center sorting operations. Our 'Sorters' are an important behind-the-scenes part of The Hope Center. They literally sort through all the incredible items donated for eventual placement in our Thrift Stores. Along with sorting the items, our volunteers help to price and prepare items for our stores.

Volunteers work in our A/C & heated facility. Volunteers will sort through items such as clothing, handbags, housewares, decor, seasonal items, accessories, toys, books, and more.

This volunteer opportunity  provides flexible hours in a safe, welcoming environment. To learn more please email us at or call Michelle at 301.739.1165
