NSI Food Pantry is looking for customer service minded volunteers to help sign up families in need for our Thanksgiving Dinner and Christmas Toy programs. These sign ups take quite a bit more time than the daily pantry intake process, so we need a couple extra volunteers a day to help with sign ups. Volunteers will speak with each family who visits NSI Food Pantry on a given day, determine their eligibility for our holiday programs and sign up interested/eligible families. Intake is done on paper, so no special computer skills required - just a friendly attitude! Help us make holiday magic possible this year. The food pantry operates by a curbside pickup model so this volunteer opportunity will take place outdoors.

This opportunity takes place every Monday through Friday from October 3rd thru November 11th, from 9:45am - 1:15pm. If you are interested in helping out, please get in touch with our Director of Development, Marcia, at mwinkfield@neighborhoodservicesinc.org
