Volunteer at the Pantry
The Pantry could not operate without our volunteers. Volunteers accept food from donors, issue receipts, unload vans and stock shelves, drive clients to and from the Pantry, deliver food to clients who are unable to get to The Pantry, and pick up food from area grocery stores, farms and orchards. They also help by shopping with customers as well as loading food into their cars. If you would like to volunteer contact Mimi or Laura at 540-987-5090.
In addition to our volunteers, our financial donors are essential to keeping The Pantry running. While donations of food are always welcome, The Pantry can often buy more with a dollar than you can (due to the discounts we receive). Monetary donations can be made here on our website or if you would like to send a check please mail your payment to:
PO Box 55
