Whether you are looking for a one-time volunteer opportunity for a group or an ongoing opportunity for yourself, we have an array of volunteer opportunities available.
Volunteers donated 29,374 hours in fiscal year 2018. According to Independent Sector research on the real value of volunteer time, those hours are worth $725,244 to the Pantry.
Over 65 individuals volunteer on a regular basis. During the COVID-19 Shelter-in-Place order, our volunteer base is stretched very thin. Our client service hours have been scaled back. If you are healthy and feel comfortable volunteering, some of our needs are:
- Assist clients:
Tuesday, or Saturday mornings, 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Thursday evenings from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM
- Food rescue drivers – Drivers license is required. A Pantry vehicle is available for pick-ups.
- Restocking shelves, sorting food, and packing boxes for client distribution: Monday through Friday, 8:00 to Noon; Monday & Wednesday through Friday, Noon to 3:00 PM
