The volunteers at these centers have helped many families and individuals as they work to overcome the hardships of the economic conditions that prevail in our communities. Several volunteers meet each week to sort through the contributions, accept food deliveries, stock shelves & fill bags in preparation for the great number of people who come seeking assistance each week. Others come each week to man tables to assist with registering, checking, counseling, and directing people to the proper place. If you are in need of assistance or interested in volunteering or providing donations, please contact one of these centers for more information.
