How To Volunteer

We value to efforts and commitment of our many volunteers and appreciate the daily blessing that they are to the mission of The Family Life Center! We can always use volunteers in many different capacities -  from light office duty and greeting visitors, to packing food boxes for commodities, to sorting Christmas presents for children who otherwise would have nothing under the tree during the holidays.

Volunteers provide valuable services to the Family Life Center. There are opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved to make a difference for the families and children served by various agency programs that we provide assistance to on a daily basis.

Some of the areas that we need volunteers in include:

  • Food Pantry Partners ~ Companies, church groups, civic clubs, scout troops, or schools are encouraged to join Food Pantry Partner program. In order to join, a group just has to agree to conduct a food drive for the Family Life Center once a year. The organization picks the month. The Family Life Center will pick up the food!

  • Adopt a Family Sponsors ~ Want to help make the holidays brighter for one of our client families? Participate as a sponsor in our Adopt a Family program. Interested groups, businesses or individuals are paired with client families who are still struggling to make ends meet. They purchase gifts that make the holidays a happy time for families in need.

  • Clothes Closet Partners ~ The Family Life Center's Clothes Closet provides good used clothing and household items to families in need. Open 4 days a week, by appointment, the Clothes Closet serves families in need and those referred by other social service agencies. Become a Clothes Closet Partner. Volunteers are needed to help staff sort through donations and prepare them for display in the Clothes Closet. Volunteers can work during the week, M – Th, in the mornings. Hours are flexible.
