Spread Hope Through Helping

Here’s how you can make a difference in your local community

How You Can Help

HopeMatch is a local charity serving those who are unseen and underserved in the Greater Charlotte, North Carolina, area. What began as a Christmas oriented organization, has now expanded to fulfill the larger need. With personalized services, HopeMatch offers helpful resources to families in need that will make a lasting difference in their lives. We consider it an honor to offer not just a hand out, but a “hand up” as we aim to bless people within the community who may not qualify for government assistance, yet deserve love and hope.

Here is how our program works:

Hopematch-get-involved-volunteer-Junior Ambassador Program

Junior Ambassador Program

Due to the nature of our events, we are no longer able to allow children under 18 to volunteer with their parents at our events. We have not taken this decision lightly, but for safety and quality purposes, we had to make this hard choice. We are excited to introduce a new program for youth where we will be investing in teaching middle and high school students the values of HopeMatch and through intentional education, will be able to incorporate our youth in volunteering at our events. If your child would like information on how to apply to the program, please indicate your interest on the volunteer application.

Volunteer Application

Please fill out the volunteer application below if you are interested in a volunteer role at HopeMatch. After completing the application, someone from HopeMatch will get back to you within 48 hours for further instructions. For those interested in serving with us, we try to find the best volunteer role to suit their background, experience, and desire to help. It is also important to note that we are no longer able to sign off on school credit for students who need volunteer hours, however we do have a Junior Ambassador Volunteer Program for youth in Middle and High School. Applications for the 2019 year will be accepted through December 31st.
