Shopping Floor Assistance:
Responsibilities include making sure the shopping floor is organized and stocked!

Pantry Assistance:
Working in our Pantry is like working in a store where you're stocking shelves and receiving food. Walking clients through what we call "shoppers choice". You let them pick out their own food and if they need help loading it in their vehicle you may be asked to do so. Monday -Wednesday help unload Food Bank delivery. Weight restrictions are 40#s. Pantry is open from 8:00am-2:00pm Monday -Friday (Hours may change).

Clothing Sorter:
Good Neighbor community center receives all kinds of donations, except big furniture items. We have a sorting area in the back where we receive all the donations. We sort through them to make sure there are no major stains or holes in them, when everything is sorted, items are hang up and clients come in and shop.
We ask that you are able to left up to 20 lbs. If you have a weight restriction we ask you bring a doctor’s note.
Volunteers play an integral role at GNCC and they are a high priority in meeting the needs of the center.
We are always in need of extra volunteers and all are welcomed to join our team. Hours of operation: Monday-Thursday 10:00am - 4:00pm and Friday 10:00am-02:00pm If LPS Is closed due to bad weather we are as well
