Lend A Hand

We are powered by volunteers…100% and we couldn’t do it without you.

There are many areas to choose from where you can lend a hand.

Help at Special Events

It takes a larger number of volunteers than usual when we prepare our Christmas Hamper project.  We need many helping hands when we are receiving, sorting and storing all of the food during the Firemen’s Annual community food drive.

If you’re interested in helping in special events we keep a list of ‘on call’ people that we can bring in for these busy times.

If you’re volunteering we know you’re concerned about what happens at the food bank. We encourage volunteers to be a member.  Members have a vote and can help determine future goals and can be on the board.  The yearly fee is $5.  You can pay online or give us cash when you’re onsite.
