Volunteer at Hoyleton

Help us transform the lives of youth and families by giving your time.
Our mission is to enable all people, young and old alike, to realize the wholeness of life that God intends. To do so, we need the help of volunteers located in the communities we serve to assist us with donation drives, administrative tasks, beautification projects, and other special events.


  • Hoyleton Hope for the Holidays- Gift Drive
Hoyleton collects over 2,200 Christmas gifts for the clients and families each year. Our Hope for the Holidays gift drive begins in November and goes through the first week of December. Once all the gifts have been donated volunteers are needed to help sort, track, wrap and deliver the gifts. Volunteers are also needed at our Puentes de Esperanza drive thru event to help load the family bags into cars for clients in the Hispanic community.
  • Back to School Drive
The Hoyleton Back to School Drive is an effort to collect backpacks and school supplies for children at our residential campus and in our foster care system. Volunteers are needed to donate items, sort the supplies and pack each backpack. The backpacks are distributed to children during the Foster Care Back to School Picnic in early August. Volunteers are needed at the picnic to help set up, serve food and clean up.
  • Administrative Volunteers
Hoyleton is looking for weekly volunteers to serve in multiple departments. Flexible shifts, approximately 2-3 hours per week, are available in our Fairview Heights location.
