Clerical Opportunities: There are numerous ways to get involved in clerical-type duties. Volunteers are sometimes needed at the front desk to work with clients or answering questions and/or phones. Food bank client intake is also an option that involves verifying that individuals are qualified, adding their information to a database, and explaining the food bank process.
Food Warehouse Service: Serving in the warehouse is a great opportunity for those wanting to dive right in. Warehouse volunteers often work sorting new donations and in keeping the warehouse clean. Thousands of pounds of goods pass through the warehouse every month so there is always a need in this area.
If volunteers expect to complete more than 10 hours of service he or she will need to attend a volunteer orientation.
Advanced Skills: Individuals with skills in business, administration, or accounting can find practical service opportunities with CCS. Students can work with monthly reporting and grant writing. This is a great experience and a resumé builder. Individuals with journalism or graphic design experience can further develop their skills by producing a monthly client publication. Those with unique skills or talents can work with the volunteer coordinator to share your knowledge with clients. CCS strives to provide those seeking to challenge themselves and build their skills every opportunity to do so.
Students participating in any aspect of service with CCS may be eligible for AmeriCorps Education Awards.
