HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

A warehouse shift is a volunteer shift in our food pantry and clothes closet. The responsibilities in the food pantry include greeting donors, accepting donations, unloading and sorting donated items, putting together food bags, and directly serving our families. The responsibilities in the clothes closet include greeting donors, accepting and sorting donations, hanging donated clothing, and directly serving our families.
