Samantha Bolan has had a variety of volunteer experiences. She has volunteered for Oxfam and the Make Trade Fair campaign at the 2006 Vans Warped Tour. Make Trade Fair is a campaign to make trade fairer for small farmers in the United States and also abroad. Oxfam is the agency that runs the campaign. At the event, she collected signatures for The Big Noise petition from the concertgoers and educated them and made them more aware of the many problems facing small farmers today.

She also volunteered at Catholic Charities Food Pantry where she worked with a young boy who came in almost every day to the Summer Lunch Program. She would play games and make crafts with him.

She has also volunteered at Lourdes Hospital. For the past four years, she has volunteered at Lourdes in the Café de Paul on Thursdays and the Gift Shop on Saturdays. The proceeds from the sales of the Café de Paul and Gift Shop go to patient care.
