We always need volunteers. We need volunteers in our Food Pantry to bag groceries for the clients, to help clients with food, and we really need volunteers with computer skills who would like to register clients to receive their food. Individuals who could commit a day a week or more are invaluable. Our Pantry operates Monday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm. In our family store we need volunteers to sort clothing, clean, assist customers with purchases, and to stock merchandise shelves. Our Store is open Monday through Friday from 10 am to 5:30 pm. We are also open on Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm.
