Additional Information:

The following are important things you need to know about volunteering in our warehouse:

  • Children under the age of 8 are not permitted in the warehouse for safety reasons.
  • Closed toed shoes are required.
  • Dress casually (jeans and t-shirts, and sweatshirts to layer in the winter)
  • Please leave all valuable jewelry at home. This includes rings which may come off in the packing process.
  • No food, gum, or drinks are permitted in the warehouse.

Parking is limited so please carpool. Visitor parking is available in front of the building and in an overflow lot across the street. If spots fill, please limit street parking to the east side (closest to the building) so semi-trucks can safely access our facility. Please enter through the Volunteer Entrance (under the red awning).

Please consider bringing donations with you when you volunteer. Our June needs of the month are fruits and vegetables. We are accepting donations like fresh fruits and fresh vegetables or canned fruits (packed in juice or water, not syrup) or canned vegetables (no salt added).
