Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: CROS Ministries

DBP Vol April 2012
Working together we can make a difference!

We are looking for a volunteer to work one 3 1/2 hour shift per week from 11:45 am to 3:15 pm to help with doing computer intake on Monday's, Tuesday's or Thursday's.

The person helping with computer intake receives training, but needs to be comfortable using a computer.

The intake volunteer is responsible for collecting information from clients, updating and maintaining the Pantry computer database, creating new client records as needed and making sure records and client information are compliant with CROS policies and procedures.

A volunteer needs to be able to handle detailed information in a busy environment.

People who find themselves in a position of having no food are grateful to have a place to go to where they can get groceries to last them a few days. This is a very rewarding volunteer position.

Volunteers must attend a pantry training and orientation session. The hours for the Delray Beach Pantry are 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday.

Mission Statement

The mission of CROS Ministries is to serve the hungry in Palm Beach and Martin Counties through community collaborations.

Description

The programs of CROS include:

Eight Community Food Pantries, The Caring Kitchen, After School Snack Program, Gleaning Program, and CROS Camp.

The CROS Community Food Pantries provide emergency food to individuals and families in need.

The CROS Caring Kitchen is a hot meal program in Delray Beach which serves a hot lunch Monday - Friday and gives out on Saturday two bagged lunches. We also deliver meals to those who are homebound three days a week.

The After School Snack program provides snacks for After School Programs in Delray Beach for children who receive free and reduced lunch at school.

Through the CROS Gleaning Program, hundreds of thousands of pounds of fresh produce are harvested during the gleaning season (Dec. to July). This fresh produce is then distributed to agencies feeding the hungry.

CROS Summer Day Camp is offered to children from families with low incomes. CROS camp provides a safe and nurturing environment and include STEM classes to keep them from falling behind over the summer.
