What do you like to do?!  Our volunteers help with . . .

  • All kinds of special projects during the year . . . some are listed here.
  • Like a steady job? Work a schedule once or twice a month!
  • Help sort food after food drives! During the May Postal Food Drive – we get over 20,000 pounds of food!  It takes us 2 months to sort!
  • Right before school starts we fill bags with school supplies and clothing. Then we check each bag to make sure it’s perfect for the student getting it!
  • Help fill up Thanksgiving baskets that we prepare to bountifully bless our clients with all the fixings for a Thanksgiving dinner.
  • Early December we sort sweat suits by size so our clients’ children get to receive a fun and comfortable new outfit for Christmas.
  • Oh, and the Christmas gifts need to be sorted too, and put in festive bags!
  • Collect gently used children’s books – they love them!
  • Hold a neighborhood food drive and bring it in and help sort. It’s fun to be a part, and it’s fun to work with others who care.
  • Looking for Warehouse volunteers. Click here to learn more.

August, September, and October are difficult months for the pantry, and any and all donations are welcome. It isn’t until November & December that local schools and organizations spearhead their food and clothing drives, so the Fall is a challenging time to keep our shelves stocked.
