Volunteer Opportunities

The SPIRIT of Santa Paula is a unique non-profit organization formed to serve our community. There are a variety of ways you can help us love the poor, hungry and challenged people in our community.

Many Meals – We serve about 600 meals each Wednesday from the Presbyterian Church at 121 Davis. The kitchen door is on the north side of the building. Cooking and preparation begins at 12 noon and serving begins at 4:15 pm. Decide when you would like to serve and simply show up. We provide lots of opportunities to earn community service hours.

We go to FOOD Share on Tuesdays and Fridays. We are happy for you to join us and help shop. It takes some training and only those who are interested in doing this regularly should plan to work in this phase.

Our drop-in center is known as Richard’s Welcome Center and open on Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 3 m. It is located at 849 Railroad Avenue. We met and greet people who are homeless or need a friend to help them connect with resources. They can check email or listen to the news. Veronica is the site supervisor and knows where to go for help. Her phone is 805.625.4898.

We are into food rescue. Every food service organization throws away food every day. Some more than others. If you have a connection with any food service organization such as school cafeterias, restaurants, catering services please put me in touch. We know how to handle food safely and we are Serve Safe Certified. Help stop the waste. Call Kay 805.340.5025.

We provide free Biblical Counseling, believing that all we need for life and godliness is found in the Bible as stated in 2 Peter 1:3 and that hope is what we need to get through this life, 1 Peter 3:1–hope in Jesus Christ.

We also provide free neighborhood mediation to help people work through the smaller but irritating challenges.

Its all Biblical. Gods word is true and its sufficient for all our needs.

We need people to pray for us. The work is hard but the worth it beyond measure.

About Kay Wilson-Boltonhttp://www.kaywilsonbolton.netWith a full-time career in real estate, I can add to your bank of knowledge, not only in real estate but in many areas of life that deal with people and relationships and choices. My real estate career has taught me many lessons about planning ahead and looking forward. I believe in helping along the way so that they can be the best they can be in any situation. I serve as a Fire Department Chaplain and Coordinator for the Many Meals Project which serves homeless and hungry families in my community. The event is far more than many meals. As a result of my work with the homeless population in my community, I received the Good Neighbor Award 2017 from the National Association of Realtors and named as a Champion of Homes in 2015 by the California Association of Realtors. I make pastoral visits to the inmates in the County Jail System and offer them what God says about "all things being new" and His remarkable plan for our lives. I have served my community as Mayor and in many volunteer capacities. I serve others by serving God first. My husband is involved in prison ministry and is a graphic artist. We live a simple life in Santa Paula with an office cat named Scout, three rescued poodles and a cat named Tony Diane at home.
