Volunteers make a huge difference in helping Community Resource Center further its mission and are one of our most important resources.
About Volunteering at CRC
Our volunteers help at our Food & Nutrition Center and resale stores, assist our staff at CRC events, host donation drives and fundraisers and help the marketing and development team with various projects. Your skills and experience make it possible for CRC to provide programs to end hunger, homelessness and domestic violence in our community.
We couldn’t do this work without you!

Volunteer of the Month
Celebrating Mary Jo Duvall and Gayle Patterson!
Mary Jo and Gayle were instrumental in October in supporting our Holiday Baskets registration process. Data and Evaluation Manager, Shakira Williams, who nominated the two of them, writes: “The volunteer position for Holiday Baskets Registration Team Captain is new this year, and both answered the call when asked. After a brief training, Mary Jo and Gayle took charge of the registration team and the new registration process. They trained the volunteers and oversaw 3 weeks of open enrollment, registering 144 households. This is my 8th Holiday Baskets registration season and the first that I was allowed to primarily focus on quarterly reporting!”
Thank you both for your hard work!
I started volunteering at CRC in the summer of 2019 because I believe in the mission. The resale stores help fund the mission, so I am proud to help the stores be successful. Plus, I love thrift stores!

Behind each face is a person, a story, a resiliency that blows my mind. I’m grateful [to walk] alongside them up the aisles of the food pantry at CRC, and challenge me to grow in my acceptance, presence, compassion, and gratitude of those I meet.

I had one lady that I walked from the store that was almost in tears. She was able to buy the cleaning supplies she needed, but also bought clothing and Christmas gifts for her kids. She was sooooo grateful and appreciative!

“One day in my kid’s classroom, I noticed that the kid sitting next to her was disheveled and tired and definitely hungry, and I asked the teacher: What do we do for students that are in a predicament such as this?” Watch the video to learn more about why Katrina became a dedicated volunteer in support of CRC’s mission.
