URGENT NEEDS!! We urgently need the following volunteers: Warehouse helpers, Dishwashers, Drivers. In addition, we are looking for 2-3 people to come to RCS one weekend a month to help sort clothes for our Dress for Success program (our partnership with Craven Community College).
Soup Kitchen: Group opportunities are limited for help in the Soup Kitchen. Please call for any available days so this can be scheduled. Too many people in the kitchen is just like at home… confusing!
Receptionist: Help greet guests and direct them to appropriate staff members for assistance. Morning and afternoon shift available 8:00am – 11:00am and 11:00am – 1:00pm; please call to confirm availability (633-2767) before showing up to volunteer for this opportunity (many shifts are already filled, so assistance may not be needed).
Food Pantry Distribution: Available hours 11:00am – 1:15pm.
Warehouse: Available hours vary Monday – Friday between 8am – 1pm. Help sort incoming donations to locations within the warehouse and/or Food Pantry. Please call before coming to make sure help is needed; we also post special requests for volunteers on our website and Facebook.
Education Partnerships: RCS offers a limited number of classes in our building through Craven Community College. Students can benefit from additional tutors. Call for more information; spots are limited for this opportunity.
Annual Events: We have a variety of events held throughout the year. These events require teams of people to ensure success. Check our Events Page for upcoming dates so you can get on board. These are always fun and very rewarding.
Shelter Dinners: Prepare a dinner off-site (or bring in take-out) for 15-20 Shelter guests. Come in to help serve and stay for a visit. Meals start at 6:00pm (remember to make meals in advance).
