Make a Difference!
We simply couldn't do what we do, without volunteers like you!
Volunteer Opportunities at the Tri-State Food Bank
At the Tri-State Food Bank we have a constant need for volunteers, both in our warehouse and in our office. We simply couldn’t do what we do without community support!
Sorting and Labeling Food Items: Outside food donations from local businesses & food drives must be inspected, sorted, and repackaged for distribution.
Weekend Backpack for Kids Program: Staff & Volunteers pack child-friendly food items such as cereal, fruit cups, shelf-stable milk, and more into plastic bags during months school is in session. These bags then go to schools and agencies who disburse them to children at the end of each week. A Great opportunity for groups!
Food for Seniors: A federal program provides food to seniors who need assistance. Staff and Volunteers are needed to pack food boxes each month.
General Cleaning: It’s important that our facility maintain a high level of cleanliness – it keeps the food safe! Sweeping, moping, dusting an emptying trash are extremely important jobs in both our warehouse and office building.
Office: Occasionally there is a need for help with bulk mailing, data entry, filing and special projects such as folding mail and stuffing envelopes for mailing.
Special Events: We have special events throughout the year (outside of office hours) that require volunteer help such as food drives, our Christmas Giveaway, donation rallies and many more!
Volunteer “Blitzes”: The first and third Saturdays, excluding holidays, each month, from 8:30 a.m. thru noon are our blitz days. All volunteers and groups are invited, but please call to schedule a group or sign up as an individual.
To volunteer for any of the above, call or email Steve at 812-425-0775 or firstname.lastname@example.org
