Volunteers are the Samaritan Center’s most precious commodity. The food pantry or the free medical, dental, and legal clinics could not run without them. The gift of your time and talent is irreplaceable and the most vital resource to keep the Center operational.
If I volunteer at the Center, what type of work would I be doing?
Volunteers perform a variety of duties. Most of our volunteers work in the pantry filling food orders. Other volunteers work in the warehouse sorting food and stocking the pantry while others work in the clothes closet sorting and organizing newly arrived clothing. We have volunteers who do computer intake, answer the phones and pick up food. Some volunteers donate their time for special events such as the Letter Carriers’ Food Drive or the Christmas Adopt-A-Family program. Currently our biggest need is for help in the afternoons.
How can someone become a Samaritan Center volunteer?
Stop by the Samaritan Center (the side door by parking lot) Monday through Thursday from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. or Thursday afternoon from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. You’ll need to fill out a form and then you can get started the same day or return on another day to begin work.
