Soup Runs Volunteers – Humans Too
Humans Too Volunteers meet at 8pm on Monday – Thursday evenings to help prepare food for the runs. We rely on the availability of volunteers in order to carry out runs across both North and South sides of Dublin city on these evenings. Each group is equipped with flasks of hot water, soup, tea and coffee along with pre-prepared ‘lunch bags’; made up of sandwiches, biscuits, crisps and fruit which are distributed to the homeless. At Humans Too we see the individual rather than the fact that they are homeless, and with that being said we look to take the time to speak to each person we meet during the soup runs.

Why volunteer with Humans Too?
- You make a difference.
- It brings people together from various backgrounds to work towards a common goal.
- You make new friends.
- You are giving something back to the community.
- It makes you feel good and it is a proven stresses reliever to take time out to help other people
Without our amazing volunteers we would not be able to carry our soup runs, we have over 500 volunteers registered with that number increasing on a weekly basis. At Humans Too we appreciate the dedication and commitment of our volunteers who help us work towards our goal of changing people’s perspective on homelessness.
“One of the main reasons I joined Humans Too was because I wanted to volunteer my free time to helping people. The knowledge and understanding I have gained about the homeless community is something I never would have learned without Humans Too. We have met many different people and have formed some strong relationships. Every Tuesday we stop to chat with a man who is always smiling and so happy to see us. I love bringing new volunteers to meet him. Knowing we can help people like him has shown me the difference we really are making within the community.”
