Volunteer Opp: Doorways for Women and Family

Doorways for Women and Families, an Arlington-based crisis shelter, is looking for a volunteer to support its mission of ending family homelessness and domestic violence.

The volunteer would help answer the shelter hotline, support women in need, and assist with day-to-day operations. Doorways expects volunteers to work at least 8-12 hours per month after completing 20-30 hours of training. Click here to apply.

If you’d like to help out but can’t make the time commitment, Doorways is also asking for donations. The organization has an Amazon.com wish list with items that families at the shelter need; all purchases go directly to the shelter.

Also, this Saturday, Rockland’s Barbeque (3471 Washington Blvd) is hosting a “Pooches on the Patio” fundraiser to benefit Doorsways. Bring your dog and any non-perishable items you’d like to donate (grocery gift cards, paper towels, toilet paper, etc.) between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Tips given to the guest bartender, Clarendon Alliance Executive Director Susan Anderson, will also be donated to Doorways.
