The St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry needs volunteers Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 8:30 a.m. – noon; and Saturdays from 12:30 – 3:30 p.m. for three to 16 hours per week.
Food Pantry volunteers distribute food to clients and may shop for food, unload food donations and shelve and sort food. Good customer service skills needed and the ability to lift boxes of food is desired. A weekly commitment is requested.
Volunteering with LUM
LUM could not provide its many programs and services without the hundreds of volunteers who generously contribute their time and talents. Most volunteers find their work to be interesting, fulfilling, and rewarding.
There are many different opportunities for volunteering, from working one-on-one with a child in the afternoon After School Program to helping run the 42-bed homeless shelter overnight. Also, there are opportunities to fit every schedule, from regular long-term commitments such as being an advocate once a week in the morning Emergency Assistance Program or at data entry at the St. John’s/LUM Food Pantry, to one time work with an event like LUM Camp, Thanksgiving Celebration, or Jubilee Christmas.
Some volunteer positions require training while others require only a willing heart and a helping hand. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
