Volunteers sought for food pantry services

York County Shelter Programs in Alfred is seeking a few volunteers to spend a morning a week from 8:30-9 a.m. to noon in the food pantry storage area receiving and recording food deliveries, stocking shelves, organizing inventory, and making up the food boxes to be distributed in the afternoon by other volunteers.

York County Shelter Programs Food Pantry gave out more than 24,000 boxes of food to York County low income residents who visited the pantry last year, so the need is great. The requirements for these positions are volunteers who would like to help people, have some organizational ability and are able to lift up to 40 pounds. There will be other volunteers to help unload the deliveries.

Other volunteer opportunities are two openings in the afternoon food pantry distributions from 12:30 to 4 p.m., drivers for transportation and pick ups, and the Bakery at Notre Dame, Alfred, needs volunteers in the morning to greet customers, answer phone calls, etc.

For more information or to volunteer, contact Joan Sylvester at 324-1137, ext. 105 or joans@ycspi.org.
