Individual Volunteer Opportunities

We have volunteer opportunities in all areas of the Center. Volunteers staff the food pantry, the Thrift Boutique, the donation center, the reception desk and serve as client interviewers. Volunteers for these areas are most needed Monday – Friday, 10 am – 2 pm and would ideally be able to work on a re-occurring basis such as once a week.

Individual volunteer opportunities also exist behind the scenes to perform duties such as calling clients, retrieving phone messages from clients, data entry, sorting donations, and food pick-up drivers. Day and evening hours can be accommodated.

Throughout the year we seek volunteers to work on seasonal programs and events such as the school supply program, Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays, the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, inventory and the Vintage Affair.

Volunteer teachers are needed to teach adult education classes during the day and evenings. Classes include English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL),  computer workshops and citizenship preparation.

CAC accepts volunteers seeking to serve community service hours, whether for school, civic organization requirements or court ordered.

Join CAC’s more than 350 regularly scheduled volunteers and make a difference in the lives of neighbors in need! For more information contact Nolan at volunteer@ourcac.org.
