Volunteers

The lifeline of our pantry is the hard work and dedication of our volunteers who work the pantry daily, stock shelves, pack bags, welcome our clients, unload trucks, run to the RFB to pick up fresh produce or to Hannaford to receive their generous donations. They do it all with a smile and make everyone who comes through our doors leave feeling they were treated with respect. If you're interested in joining our crew, call or email Sherri.
