Friend's of the Poor welcomes volunteers for regular volunteer service or one-time special events/projects. Assistance is needed from individuals, families and groups. On a daily basis, volunteers assist in organizing the food pantry, clothing, and household item distributions. Special projects include collections of items for children and senior citizens, assistance at the large food giveaways at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter, transportation of food to pantry sites and many other projects and events.
