Please note St. Patrick Center is not licensed to book court mandated hours at this time. For on site volunteering we require volunteers to be 14 with a chaperone, 16 to volunteer alone.

St. Patrick Center has a re-branded trivia event coming soon! The Trivia Party will take place Friday, February 8, 2019 at Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark. We need volunteers to assist with set-up, registration, sales, scoring and more. Click here to volunteer for this event!

The following volunteer opportunities are perfect for groups:


St. Patrick Center volunteers serve over 1,450 casseroles every year. Come together with a group of friends or family to participate in this new volunteer opportunity. Volunteer in your church kitchen, school kitchen, or even your own home to prepare casseroles for St. Patrick Center and Biddle Housing Opportunities Center to serve as meals.


Up to 7 volunteers
Serving lunch is our most popular volunteer activity. Volunteers are needed every day to serve lunch to our clients and to the public. All shifts must be pre-scheduled and fill up fast. View full volunteer opportunity here

Each night, 20 women stay at St. Patrick Center as part of our Women’s Night Program. Volunteers are needed to plan, prepare and serve dinner each evening. Your group gets to choose the menu!

Groups of all ages
The Trevisano’s display includes thousands of lights, more than 100 teddy bears, animations and, of course, Christmas music. We rely on volunteers to manage the donation box Thursday – Sunday evenings from Thanksgiving until Christmas. Proceeds from the donation box go to St. Patrick Center to help our clients build permanent, positive change. The shifts are 6:30-8:30 pm. You can bring chairs, hot chocolate, snacks, etc. but please be advised the nearest restroom is 1.7 miles away. Contact Samantha Decker to sign up for this event!


Can’t volunteer during regular business hours? We have other opportunities to help in the evenings and on weekends. These include making salad kits, putting together hygiene kits, and more. For ways to volunteer from home click here.

Donations can be dropped off at St. Patrick Center’s donation center dock located at the back of our building on Hadley Street. Items are accepted Monday through Friday from 8am to 4pm. On weekends and holidays from 9am-11am, we only accept salad kits and casseroles. Please call 314-802-1976 before dropping off prepared food to ensure refrigeration space is available.
