We rely on our volunteers for everything! They are the most wonderful group of people and we would love to have you be one of them! There are several different opportunities for all skill levels. Packing, prepping, and organizing all happen before Distribution Day. And then...the real FUN happens on the fourth Saturday when our guests come!
If you would like to be added to a volunteer list, please email email@example.com or use the contact us page. I encourage you to use the Google calendar below to sync individual events or the full calendar to your device.
DISTRIBUTION DAY: Saturday, August 25, 2018
We also need to thank The Gibbs Center for Independence for partnering with us. Their residents gain job and life skills by packing and portioning and we get to cut our prep needs!
Prep Days - please RSVP before coming to these days as the time and/or date sometimes varies. You can use our Facebook page, contact form, or email to do so.
