West Valley Community Services (WVCS)* is looking for 1-2 volunteers to do Monday morning Grocery pickup. This shift is from approximately 8:00 am-9:30 am. Volunteer(s) would be accompanied by a staff member who is familiar with the pick up until the volunteer(s) become comfortable on their own. Volunteers drive the van to the store, weigh and load the donations, then drive them back to WVCS. The food goes straight to our Food Pantry where it is available to our clients that day.
WVCS has wonderful relationships with local grocery stores to provide clients with fresh produce and bread, things that many typical food pantries cannot provide. In order to provide these goods to clients, we look for volunteers to help us pick up these donated groceries and bring them into the food pantry.
