Volunteer Information

Big Heart Brigade is changing with the times. Sadly, after 17 years at the Fire Station, the City of Palm Beach Gardens decided to develop a training facility on that property, thus Big Hart Brigade needed to redefine its efforts.

Ok, so how does that new operation look?
    • We are now totally mobile
    • Big Heart Brigade has partnered with Palm Beach Harvest
    • Together, we are distributing food and meals throughout the pandemic.
    • Big Heart Brigade contiunes to serve our community throughout the year, not just a single season.

The 2020 season presented challenges, at best, with the COVID-19 compliance requirements. Not to worry, our Coming to the Rescue motto remains unbroken. Big Heart Brigade is NOT preparing Thanksgiving meals as in the past, but will continue our partnership with Palm Beach Harvest and distributing food packages.

Dear VOLUNTEERS, continue to check our site often for upcoming opportunites. Please know we miss you. We always look forward to seeing you. Should you decide to lend a helping hand and volunteer just simply click here to sign up.

Note supporting our efforts during these difficult times is very much appreciated. Please DONATE -- to help offset costs of a meal package.

Not even the pandemic will stop the Big Heart Brigade COMING TO THE RESCUE.

 

Optimized Process

The Big Heart Brigade has many opportunities to volunteer throughout the year. See what’s available now or contact us for more info.

 

Here’s what you should expect when you volunteer:

Can students or others get community service hours?

Yes—students or others looking to receive community service hours need to bring filled out paperwork provided to them that will be signed once the volunteer has completed their
work for the day.

Can I bring my pre-schooler?

We're happy to have family friendly shifts for
young children ages 6–12, so long as they are accompanied by an adult. Strollers aren't
permitted on site and children must be supervised at all times.

Do you feed the volunteers?

We don't provide food for volunteers as we've designed the shifts to be no longer than 4 hours long.

Should I bring my own water?

Water is provided, but you are welcome to bring your own as well.

Will I be working outside?

Yes—for day shifts, plan on sunscreen and a hat.

 

 

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty. Closed-toed shoes are a must. We cannot permit anyone onsite with sandals.

What will I be doing?

Various jobs will be assigned when you arrive. Please come with a spirit of cooperation and realize that even if the assigned job doesn’t seem like much, it's necessary to the success of the event.

Can I work more than one shift?

Yes—please sign up for all shifts that you wish to work.

Should I bring canned goods for donation?

No—this year we will not be collecting unwrapped Christmas toys/gifts or food.

Where will this take place?

This year we are serving multiple locations within our region. Please view the specific locations on our Sign-up.com page.
