The Market Food Pantry at Mary Rigg Neighborhood Center is looking for a few volunteers who don’t mind helping out in the non-glamorous side of things. Every Wednesday morning we gather at 9am to unload the van, sort through fresh produce & bread, and get set-up.
Sometimes it’s a bit messy, but it’s necessary to keeping the pantry open each week. If you can spare 1-2 hours on a Wednesday morning, let us know! We’d love to have you!
Interested in joining? Contact Treva Burgess at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 639-6106 to sign up.
