Amy with Volunteer

The Keystone Community Services food shelves are open and serving approximately 100 families every day. Many of the volunteers who served in our programs over the summer are going back to school or work this fall so we have a lot of openings for volunteers, most notably in our food shelf programs.

Our most urgent volunteer needs:

  • Delivery & Sorting Shift at the Food Shelves
      • Get your steps in and help us get our food shelves prepped for service.
      • Volunteer shifts are from 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.
  • Morning Food Shelf Assistant
      • Pack bags and assist with food shelf service, in a socially distanced way.
      • Mornings shifts are from 9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
  • Afternoon Food Shelf Assistant
    • Pack bags and assist with food shelf service, in a socially distanced way.
    • Afternoon shifts are from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m.


Are you wondering if volunteering is safe during the COVID-19 pandemic?

Keystone has modified our program delivery in all programs to offer services in safe, socially distanced ways. Here are a few examples of things we’re doing differently:

  • A health screening questionnaire poster is shown at our food shelves and any staff, participants, or volunteers who cannot answer yes to all of the questions are asked not to participate in our programs.
  • All staff, volunteers, and participants must wear a mask covering their nose and mouth.
  • Every site has hand sanitizer and handwashing stations readily available.
  • All staff and volunteers must wear gloves when handling food.
  • Each site has a specific number of people allowed in each building during a shift to allow for social distancing when working.
  • Participants are served one at a time, in a socially distanced way. In our Meals on Wheels program, we are delivering meals once per week to limit exposure for everyone.
