In the midst of the crisis due to COVID-19 (coronavirus) generating increased needs from certain segments of the community, the Diocese of Orange, in partnership with Catholic Charities, St. Vincent de Paul Society and the Knights of Columbus, launched Serve+Hope Helpline, in support to all of those in need, especially the elderly, homebound, and pregnant women.  The joint effort answers the call of Pope Francis to be missionary disciples.

Those in need of food can call the hotline 844-279-0105 from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. A Catholic community of volunteers will be ready to help with essential needs. They will connect callers with local resources for food. The services that will be provided include: groceries to homes and provision of food and other necessities from local food pantries to those that might not be able to afford it at this time.

To meet increased needs from the diverse communities served in the Diocese of Orange, Serve+Hope is providing those looking to help others during the pandemic with the following volunteer opportunities:

  • Volunteer to answer calls on the helpline. Training will be provided. Can be done from your own home.
  • Volunteer to deliver food to the homebound. Must be under 60 years of age, have a current drivers’ license, auto insurance and use of a vehicle.
  • Volunteer to package food at local pantry and a parish-based food pantry.
