1. Food Pantry

Help distribute food on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday 8 am to 11 am.

Help stock and organize our pantry area on Tuesday & Thursday 12 to 3 pm.

Please contact us to confirm any days and times (217-428-4672) as schedules might change, to fill out any needed volunteer paperwork (depending on the volunteering area), AND to share how many volunteers might attend.  This helps to plan the day when we know how many volunteers we will have arrive and help.  It is also helpful to know that teenagers under 16 are welcome if arranged ahead of time and a good hard worker accompanied by adult supervision.
