THRIVE Peninsula


Take a guess! What time of year do you think that THRIVE receives the most requests for food and financial aid? Believe it or not, the answer is the summer months! On-call volunteer substitutes are needed to take over responsibilities of regular volunteers who take vacation in June, July, and August. There is no set schedule for these on-call positions that include office work, pantry stocking, recording phone messages, and cleaning.  If you have two-four hours per month that you might donate to THRIVE during the summer months, please call Mary at 757-877-6211 x2. Schedule is flexible.FINANCIAL COACHES

THRIVE is one of many non-profit organizations on the Peninsula that benefit from the Community Knights GIFT Program. Funding for the GIFT program comes from income from Bingo, and the GIFT grants would not exist without volunteers to help with Bingo for a few hours on Wednesdays and Sundays. Right now volunteers are in short supply. If you can help Community Knights by volunteering for Bingo, please go to
