FACES is an all-volunteer organization. Volunteers are the heart and hands of FACES. We know how valuable your time is and we cherish it. Our ability to provide food for many in need is entirely dependent on high levels of volunteer support and we warmly welcome all who can help.
FACES welcomes volunteers at its facility at 482 Commerce Road at the following times:
On Thursdays, FACES receives shipments from the Central Virginia Food Bank in Richmond. The food, including fresh produce and frozen meats, arrives in an 18 wheeler truck. We need volunteers to help unload this truck and store the food properly.
Volunteers are needed to bag over 600 bags of food and generally an equal number of bags of produce.
Volunteers are needed for a variety of things including handing out bags, bagging fresh produce and bread, loading and pushing carts. From May to August, FACES is particularly in need of volunteers while students are out of town. Students are an important and valued part of FACES volunteer corps.
