The Peter Maurin Center is a great place for highschool students to fulfill their service hour requirements. Many students over the years have become part of the Peter Maurin family and have taken on many projects big and small!

Volunteer at Peter Maurin Dining Hall

We need volunteers to help prepare and serve the weekly meals and help with the cleanup afterward. Sometimes the most important thing a volunteer can do is to visit with guests and share some time and a smile. We even have a piano. You'll often find Piano Man John and other musicians offering the gift of beautiful music.

Sponsor Meals

Local churches, community groups, and even individuals and families have stepped in to put together a meal for the Peter Maurin Center.
