Food Donation Driver Volunteers [Immediate Need]

Volunteers are needed to pick up food donations from neighboring grocery stores weekly on a designated Monday or Thursday and deliver the food received to our community food pantry between 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m.  Pick-up locations are typically within a 4 – 7 mile radius from our 9606 Kirkton Drive location.

A large vehicle (i.e, pick-up truck, van or SUV) is required. Subs are also needed for occasional grocery and Red Barrel donation pick-ups. If you have been looking for opportunities to volunteer in your community and prefer to get an early morning start, this is a great way to contribute!
