The following service opportunities are available to participate in outside of Pegasus:
Harvest food, fight hunger, build community! We will be collecting these beautiful fresh fruit that would otherwise go to waste, and donating 100% to local hunger-relief agencies. Join the Volunteer Harvest Team to help us pick as much fruit as possible from trees, and pack it into boxes to be donated. Volunteers should be comfortable picking and carrying boxes of fruit, but don’t need to worry about bringing equipment or transporting the fruit. This opportunity is open
to volunteers 5 years old and older, though children under 16 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
Volunteer to help JDRF Orange County’s mission to raise money for Type 1 diabetes research in hopes we can one day cure, prevent and treat T1D. When you volunteer to support the walk, the money raised supports life-changing breakthroughs that gives hope to everyone impacted by this disease. And, you'll have a great time doing it! That's because you'll volunteer with a committed community that is passionate about doing whatever it takes to help turn Type One into Type None!

Thanksgiving Perfect Potluck
Perfect Potluck offered through Grandma's House of Hope
is extremely straightforward and easy to use. Help us provide a Thanksgiving dinner to our residents at our Emergency Shelter or one of our transitional homes. We allow individuals or groups to sign-up for side dishes, desserts, bread, and beverages for each property. For the safety of our clients, we aren't able to post shelter addresses however houses are located in Orange County. Once you sign-up, we will provide you with additional information and portion size. Meals should be delivered before 12 noon on Thanksgiving. We have had volunteers in the past want to deliver the day before and that is okay.
