Care and Share Food Bank depends on local volunteers to further its mission of drawing from plenty to reduce want. The organization draws on individuals from all walks of life and all generations and strives to honor the unique gifts each volunteer has to bring. To this end and to best serve its clientele, Care and Share offers both administrative and field opportunities.
Administrative volunteer positions include welcome office staff, who greet shoppers and donors while supporting staff. Similarly, Care and Share office volunteers fill the organization's crucial need for logistical support and help with mailing, filing, and other day-to-day tasks. Other volunteers prefer to fill backpacks for local children, prepare snacks in the organization's community kitchen, or sort and pack donations. Those who enjoy the outdoors may volunteer in Care and Share community gardens, while others may prefer assisting at promotional events and fundraisers like the Cooking for a Cause series, which invites professional chefs to prepare a four-course meal for guests. Potential volunteers can find more information on these and other opportunities at CareandShare.org.
