Request a Volunteer Shift for Your Group

(Please select ‘I am scheduling my group’ in the registration)

Volunteering in our warehouse is a fun, interactive opportunity for corporate and community groups to support the community and we receive many more requests than we have shifts available. For this reason, we recognize groups who also run food drives and/or donate funds by providing them with more volunteer opportunities throughout the year. For information on donating food and/or funds, please read about Other Ways to Help.

Steps to Volunteering as a Group – Corporate, Casual or Family

Step 1: Register your group on the Volunteer Calendar. Please select “I am scheduling my group” in the registration. Each group needs a lead contact person. Others can register later.

Step 2: Review and sign the Volunteer Waiver and the Health and Safety forms.

Step 3: Check out the Volunteer Calendar for available Group dates, taking note of maximum group sizes.

Step 4: Select SIGN UP to schedule your group for that shift. The group leader can reserve group numbers; individual names can be added later.

Please note:

  • Once you have signed up your shift request it will be considered ‘pending’ until reviewed by the Volunteer Coordinator. You can expect a response within 48 hrs.
  • All volunteers must wear close-toed, sturdy shoes. Slippers and sandals will not be allowed.
  • If you must cancel your shift please do so, via the website, as early as possible.
  • We ask that groups please bring along a food donation. We suggest each person bring a grocery bag of non-perishable items. Check out our most needed items list for donation inspiration.
