The Interfaith Works (IW) Clothing Center and Food Hub distributes clothing, household goods, and food free of charge to clients so they can pay for rent, bills, and other expenses. Thousands of individuals, businesses, schools, camps, service organizations, and congregations donate time and goods, which make our program possible. We are proud to provide the link between people in our community who have things they no longer need or want with the people in the community who are in need of the same items.

Volunteers will help us receive, sort, and organize clothing and home good donations, restocking food, checking expiration dates, and supporting clients as needed by finding food and clothing items in the store and helping clients bring food to their cars.

All new volunteers are required to attend a brief orientation session. Orientation is offered Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday mornings at 8:30, and Wednesday afternoons at 4:00. You can sign up for orientation here.

All volunteer shifts are by appointment only. Volunteer shifts are available at the Clothing Center and Food Hub Tuesdays-Fridays 8:00-4:00, and Saturdays 9:00-2:00. When you arrive to volunteer you will be assigned to the Clothing Center or Food Hub as needed. You can sign up for volunteer shifts here.

All volunteers need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or proof of a negative COVID test 72 hours prior to any volunteer shift. Please send all related documents to mmarks@iworksmc.org.

We require that volunteers be at least 14 years old. All volunteers under 18 years of age must have a parent signature to start their hours. A parent’s signature can be provided on our online form or in person.

Thank you to all of our Interfaith Works community members for your patience and support throughout the entire COVID-19 health crisis.

Thank you!
