Group Volunteers

If you’re seeking a hands-on team building experience where you can make a difference in your local community, then The Mustard Seed of Central Florida is the place for you.

Whether you are a church, club, business or organization, you can have fun with your team while volunteering with us. Tasks vary by day depending on the needs of our organization, but typical tasks include: donation sorting, warehouse organizing, mattress recycling, assisting in our Seed Boutique & Community Shop, organizing our dish and linen rooms and assisting clients. If you have a special skill set and would like to schedule a specific task with us, feel free to contact the community engagement manager to coordinate that special project. We are always open to new ideas and improving our operations with the help of the local community!

The Mustard Seed of Central Florida accepts groups as few as five people with a maximum of 65 people at a time. Dates and times are flexible and are scheduled on a first come, first-served basis with the community engagement manager. Our hours are M-F between 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. and occasional Saturday mornings from 9 a.m.-Noon are available. We ask groups do a minimum of three hours in order to ensure we can finish projects started by the group. Typical shifts during the week are either morning (9 a.m.-Noon) or afternoon (1 p.m.-4 p.m.), but shifts are scheduled uniquely for each group in conjunction with the group and community engagement manager. To schedule a volunteer shift email: volunteer@mustardseedfla.org with the name of your organization, a phone number, point of contact’s email address, the number of volunteers you plan to bring and two dates and time options. Please allow one month in advance to schedule your group.
