Volunteers Your Time and Talent

is staffed by over 250 volunteers who work over 2,500 hours each month. Four paid staff (the Executive Director, Administrative Assistant, and two Facilities Maintenance personal) work to support the efforts of the volunteers.

There is a constant and growing need for more volunteers as the Center expands its programs and hours of operation. If you don't see something listed below that best uses your time or talent, then you tell us what you would like to do!

If you want to work directly with clients, you might want to be an:

  • Interviewer who listens to the clients and talks with landlords and utility service providers to obtain an understanding of the client’s needs in order to recommend the most appropriate assistance in the form of food, clothing and household items, bus passes, toys and financial assistance.

  • Clothing Distribution Volunteer to assist clients in making selections of clothing and household goods.


If you prefer limited interaction with clients, then you might want to consider these options:

  • Intake Workers who represent the Center to all clients, friends, and visitors and convey the Center’s spirit of cooperation and helpfulness. These workers answer the phone, greet visitors and clients, schedule interviews, prepare clients for their interviews, & complete some paperwork related to a client’s visit after the interview.

  • Food Distribution Volunteers prepare the appropriate quantities and types of food and household products to fit the needs of the clients and their families based upon the information provided by the Interviewers.

  • Toy Distributors who distribute toys to ensure that children receive gifts for Christmas.


If you would rather not interact with clients, then you can make a difference in these areas:

  • Food Warehouse Volunteers receive and sort food for distribution to clients and help maintain proper inventory control.

  • Clothing Sorters make sure that clothing and household items are available for retail and client needs. The sorter determines what is kept or redistributed to one of 13 other agencies supported by the Center, places clothing on hangers and tags& them with appropriate size tags.

  • Client Data Entry Volunteers enter information used for valuable statistical analysis and fundraising about anyone who comes to the Center seeking assistance and any assistance provided into the Center’s database.
