Catholic Charities Volunteer Ambassadors
We recruit volunteers to represent Catholic Charities at local parish events and educate the community about our mission and services. The time commitment is flexible, and training will be provided.
Catholic Charities offers a weekly food pantry to anyone in need of assistance. Volunteers assist in many different ways. For example, they help organize and stock shelves with food items, accept donations, help customers select items, and carry groceries for those in need.
Current volunteer opportunities are:
Organizing the food pantry: Sort food on shelves (flexible schedule)
Client interviews: Meet with clients face-to-face and process food requests on Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Wednesdays between 1:30-4:30 p.m., and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m.-noon.
Food collection: Work within the community to organize food drives and arrange collection (flexible schedule).
Packers: Pack food for distribution on Tuesdays from 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Wednesdays from 1:30-4:30 p.m., and Thursdays from 9:00 a.m.-noon.
Shoppers: We provide the funds and the list. You provide the effort and time to shop for the food pantry (flexible schedule).
Meet and greet visitors, answer phones, and perform clerical work. We offer flexible schedules Monday-Friday between 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. We especially need bilingual volunteers.
Work on special mailings that occur several times per year (flexible schedule).
Wee Care Shoppe
