Volunteer Opportunities Available

Volunteers are an integral part of our organization. We rely on the talents, skills and generosity of many wonderful volunteers to ensure that those in need are able to receive food. To help, simply complete one of the registration forms in the links below.


Volunteering During Covid-19

  • We encourage our volunteers to stay home if you are feeling sick, regardless of the type of symptoms you are experiencing.
  • If volunteers do not feel comfortable coming to work at God’s Storehouse, please do not feel obligated and stay home if you feel that is the best choice for you, your health, and the health of those around you.
  • We have increased our focus on cleanliness and will perform regular sanitation of high traffic, high touch areas.
  • Wash your hands often and be sure to cover your coughs and sneezes.
  • We have disposable gloves, hand sanitizer, and hard surface cleaner and paper towels available throughout the facility. Please use as needed.
  • Maintain a distance of at least 6 feet between yourself and other volunteers, staff, or customers.
  • We encourage you to wear a mask if you have one. We have disposable and reusable masks and shields available if you need one.
