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
- 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.
The basic requirements for volunteering at WRCH are compassion, consideration,
and the desire to make an impact in this community.
Each volunteer receives on-the-job training and classroom instruction and updates
to keep them current on agency policy.
Let us know when you are available, and we will work with you to find the time when
you can make the greatest impact.
