Volunteer Now – We Can’t Do It Alone

The Food Closet operates solely on the generosity of over 90 volunteers, but more are always needed.  Will you consider helping?  You can volunteer for one or more of the following positions. Training is involved. We also need help a few times a year when large, scheduled food drives take place.  Due to confidentiality, schedules, and training involved, we can not accept school youth volunteers. All positions, with the exception of picking up donations, have flexible schedules and can work as little or as much you like.
