Be a Volunteer

Volunteer one time or on a regular basis. We have a wide variety of opportunities. One is sure to pique your interest.

Current Volunteer Needs

We can always use help in our food pantry, clothing center and warehouse. While we prefer to know when you plan to volunteer, we welcome anyone to come by during business hours to volunteer in our most-needed programs. Please ask a staff member to help you check in so we can keep track of your volunteer hours. We prefer you register as a volunteer after three visits. 

     Volunteer "Anytime Hours"

  • Monday through Friday - 9 am to 4 pm
  • Tuesday and Thursday evenings - 4 pm to 7 pm (sometimes we finish early)
  • First and third Saturdays of each month - 9 am to noon

If you stop by to volunteer and you need student service hours recorded, be sure to find a staff member to help you check in. This is the only way we can verify service hours. 

 

These opportunities are also available for those who want a scheduled, recurring volunteer position.
