Pantry

If you speak Spanish or Haitian Creole and have some time to give during the week, it would make such a difference to people who come to our pantry for help!

Pantry volunteers work with our pantry coordinator to help end hunger in our community. As a volunteer, you'll talk with clients to determine what foods they need and then fill bags for clients to bring home with them. There's a particular need for volunteers who speak Spanish or Haitian Creole, from basic skills to fluent speakers.

Available hours are Mondays through Fridays, 9:30am to 11:30am.

Gracias! M├Ęsi!

Open Doors provides, shelter, support, and a path to success for people dealing with homelessness and poverty. The shelter has 95 beds to provide emergency shelter for individuals and families.
