volunteers at Together We Cope food pantry

It takes many people, many talents and many gifts to help our neighbors stay in their homes when a temporary financial crisis hits. We could not do it without our volunteers.

  • In our food pantry, volunteers make sure hungry families get nutritious food.
  • In our resale shop they inspect donations, create window displays, stock shelves, perform cashier duties, and many other tasks.
  • At our special events, they help create an experience the community loves to support.
