- We’ll give you the training you need and let you shadow the role first.
- You’ll be ready to volunteer!
Check out our current volunteer opportunities below.
Our food pantry is open Thursdays from 10:00am – 12:00pm and 5:00pm – 7:00pm. As a pantry volunteer, you’ll get to work directly with our patrons as you welcome and check them in, assist as needed during shopping, restock product and keep the pantry tidy. Time commitment is typically 2 ½ hours per shift.
Our weekly food order arrives between 7:30am – 10:30am on Wednesdays. As a food handler, you will join other volunteers in unloading and stocking product from those orders. You should be able to lift up to 20 lbs. Time commitment is typically 2 hours per shift.
We currently have weekly donations that require pick-up in Juneau and Columbus. Food pick-up volunteers will pick-up product donations and return/unload product at our facility. You should be able to lift up to 20 lbs. Time commitment is typically 1 hour per shift.
Box Truck Driver
Driving our box truck doesn’t require a special license, just a clean driving record! As a box truck driver, you would travel to pick up larger donations on behalf of The Gathering Source and return/unload product at our facility. Time commitment is typically 2 hours per pick-up and is “as needed.”
As a special events volunteer, you’ll work with other volunteers to make our events and programs come to life. Tasks may vary by event and can accommodate your availability.
Building & Grounds
As a building and grounds volunteer, you’ll be helping keep our building and grounds in the best condition possible. This may include weeding, small repairs, window cleaning and/or other building and grounds needs. Time commitment is flexible and can vary based on weather.
