Please note St. Patrick Center is not licensed to book court mandated hours at this time.

The following volunteer opportunities are perfect for groups:


The Trevisano’s display includes thousands of lights, more than 100 teddy bears, animations and, of course, Christmas music. Volunteers are needed 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.


Up to 20 volunteers
Come together with a group of friends or family to participate in this new volunteer opportunity. Volunteer in our commercial kitchen or your own home to prepare casseroles for St. Patrick Center and Biddle Housing Opportunities Center to serve as meals.

Serving meals is our most popular volunteer activity. Volunteers are needed for serving breakfast, lunch and dinner each day to our clients and to the public. All shifts must be pre-scheduled and fill up fast.

Groups are needed to help with St. Patrick’s Center’s client events: Give Thanks and Christmas Wishes. In November, donors, including Schnucks, CIC Group, and St. Clement of Rome parish donate turkeys and traditional Thanksgiving dishes to help individuals and families. Before Christmas, donors throughout the St. Louis area play Santa and purchase gifts for our clients and their children from their personal wish lists.


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

You are welcome to drop your donation off behind of our building at our dock area, a staff member will greet you at your car. Drop off donations times are Monday-Friday 8am-4pm and Saturday and Sunday 9am-11am. Only sandwich donations can be accepted on the weekends and holidays, not general clothing donations or other food donations.
