The official opening of the 8,000-square-foot expansion has created more volunteer opportunities for area residents, both as individuals and groups.
Thanks to our $2.6 million expansion, the new volunteer room offers space for additional evening hours, from 4:30 – 8 p.m., in addition to the morning hours from 8-11 a.m. and afternoon hours from noon until 4 p.m.
Volunteer opportunities include food sorting, assembling bags of food for the Backpack Program and meals for children’s nutrition programs, clerical work and helping with general tasks in the volunteer room.
“We are excited about expanding our volunteer hours to include evening shifts. This will allow groups that previously may have not been able to volunteer with us on a regular basis to participate. This is a positive addition to the use of our brand-new volunteer room in Milford,” said Chad Robinson, our Milford Branch director.
Special arrangements can be made on Saturdays or Sundays for volunteer groups of 10 or more.
