Volunteers are the heart and soul of Interfaith Social Services. Each year hundreds of caring individuals donate their time to help fulfill Interfaith’s mission. Volunteers serve food to hungry clients through the Pantry Shelf food program, the Bureau Drawer Thrift Shop is entirely run by volunteers who sort clothes and prepare items for sale, volunteers assist low-income job seekers in the Career Closet, they raise produce in our food pantry garden, they help write grant applications, they operate our reception desk, answer telephones, coordinate fundraisers, serve on planning committees and much more.
The common denominator amongst all of Interfaith’s volunteers is their commitment to services which benefit our neighbors in need.
How To Get Involved?

We welcome inquiries from corporate and community groups who are looking for one-day volunteer opportunities. These can be great team-building experiences while your employees give back to their community.
