Opportunity Details

Food Distribution/Warehouse Assistance

Father Joe's Villages needs volunteers to assist with distributing food to the community and external agencies via a drive-thru food distribution. Volunteers will assist with the flow of cars and help with miscellaneous warehouse tasks such as general housekeeping, weighing food, and packing.

Supporting this effort will help them serve more of our neighbors in need during these challenging times. Father Joe's Villages already serves three meals daily at their main campus and are extending their services even further through this food distribution.
