Volunteers are the cornerstone of VISTE’s services. We could not successfully fulfill our mission without our wonderful and dedicated volunteers. Below is an overview of our many volunteer opportunities.
Hot Meal Delivery Driver
The volunteer picks up hot meals from First Presbyterian Church between 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. The volunteer is given a list of client names and contact information. The hot meals are delivered to the client’s homes. Hot Meals are delivered Tuesday and Thursdays.
Supplemental Grocery Delivery Driver
The volunteer contacts clients prior to delivery; pick up client roster and groceries (a “banana box” of dry goods, plus bread, meat, and whatever fresh produce and/or milk and eggs we have available) from VISTE on designated week, Saturday thru the following Friday (no Sunday delivery); deliver to individual homes; check on the client’s well-being.
The volunteer will be answering phones, filing, and providing data entry.
The volunteer sorts and packs food items and provides all duties necessary to help maintain the VISTE warehouse. Duties may also include special projects such as bagging, goody bags, flopping bags, and packing produce.
