Dorcas Food Pantry
There are still openings at Dorcas Food Pantry starting Oct 12, 2019. St. Paul’s has been given an opportunity to serve those less fortunate by helping out on an ongoing basis at the Dorcas Food Pantry. It is located at 187 High House Road in Cary (when facing the entrance to the Thrift Shop it is the first door on the right – ring the bell). This is a great opportunity for families or small groups looking for a way to help neighbors in need. St. Paul’s has been asked to supply 4 volunteers for the 2nd and 4th Saturday from noon to 3:00 p.m. on an on-going basis. Children ages 11 and up can serve with a parent. The shoppers will be people pre-approved and St. Paul’s will be responsible for assisting shoppers, receiving food pantry donations, helping pack up groceries, smiling and encouraging the shoppers. Click HERE to sign up. If you any questions, contact Nancy Fierke at email@example.com or 919-467-8807.
Volunteer Openings include Outreach Reception, Outreach Scheduler, Food Pantry, Cashier, and Admin Reception. If you are interested in any of these roles or would like to know more, please contact Ellen Frazier at 919 469-9861 Ext 101 or email Ellen@dorcascary.org
