Volunteers will be asked to sort through non-perishable food donations, and package them in boxes based on the designated standards for the donation type. Volunteers will be required to lift small packages (up to 30 lbs.) and have good organizational skills. Volunteers will be working in a warehouse and should dress comfortably with closed toe shoes. Volunteers must be age 14 or older. Volunteers are needed Monday through Thursday in 2-3 hours shifts from 9am until 3pm. Groups of up to 5 volunteers can be accommodated at one time. We schedule volunteers for this opportunity at least 2 months in advance.

Administrative Support

Occasionally, we need assistance in the office area for small administrative tasks such as answering the phone, assisting with mailing and filing.
