Food Pantry/Clothes Closet:

During open service hours, volunteers act as receptionist, client shopping assistants, clothes closet monitors, and client intake workers (who receive training from DMARC). Pantry volunteers work shifts Monday 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM and Friday 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (please plan to arrive about 10 minutes early and stay about 10-15 minutes after for cleanup).

Outside of service hours, volunteers assist with sorting and stocking food, personal care items, and clothing. Persons interested in assisting with food stocking need to be able to lift heavy boxes and be available on a regular basis. Email for more information. Persons interested in sorting and hanging clothing can work on a more flexible schedule and should email for more information.
