Volunteer

  • Volunteers come from variety of diverse backgrounds and ages from many organizations and communities in Southeast Michigan. There is no special training needed.
  • Junior High and High School students join us to fulfill their school’s Community/Christian Service requirement. PBJ is a recognized provider of community service hours. Many have continued to volunteer on a regular basis.
  • Individuals and families are invited. Children are welcome (+7), when accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
  • Groups (10 or more) need to be scheduled and are asked to contact PBJ prior, to arrange the date.  We want to ensure we can accommodate the volunteers and ensure a positive and rewarding experience. If you are interested in bringing items to pass out or donate, please provide that information at time of contact.
  • Please note: Transportation is not provided by PBJ to the Detroit locations.
