We Love Our Volunteers

Volunteers are a vital part of our organization. We couldn't serve our community without the warm hearts and willing hands of those who want to make a difference in people's lives. A volunteer at The Branch will meet people from all walks of life, gain valuable experience and insight into the Nashville community, and be part of bringing hope to our neighbors in need.

Volunteer FAQs:

Is there a minimum age to sign up for volunteers?

Children ages 7-14 are welcome to volunteer when accompanied by an adult who will be working alongside the child. Children 6 and younger may not volunteer as the warehouse environment of The Branch can pose dangers to young children. 

There aren't any opportunities for the date or time I would like to visit.

Contact the Volunteer Director at to find a good time for you.
