Samaritan Volunteer Needed

Jim Volunteer PhotoSamaritan Community is looking for a reliable volunteer or two to help with their Thursday pickup from Whole Foods Market in Mt. Washington.

Volunteers arrive at the market between 10–10:30 am to load donated produce, baked goods and groceries into their car and then bring the food to Samaritan Community’s pantry in the basement of Memorial Episcopal Church.

The only requirements for volunteering are:

  • The ability to reliably make the commitment most weeks, though there are always times when a volunteer can’t make it due to vacations or other conflicts.
  • The ability to lift up to 30 pounds.
  • A car with sufficient room for the donations. SUVs and wagons are ideal, but mid-size sedans are adequate.

Volunteering with a friend often works well, as this makes the work more fun and flexible.
