Volunteers are the backbone
Due to COVID-19, Crossroads Community Services is now operating a drive-thru food pantry, Monday – Thursday: from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm. We are serving clients in an efficient and safe manner, so that they do not have to leave their vehicles.
We are in a 72,000 sq. foot facility and have enhanced our cleaning methods, procedures, and schedule. Staff and volunteers are requested to wash their hands before entering the warehouse, and wear a mask during their shifts.
Volunteers have been serving in three different areas:
- Assisting with the Drive-thru Pantry Operation, clients drive-up, stay in their cars with their windows closed, place pertinent information on the dashboard, which is recorded. Volunteers bring prepackaged boxes of groceries and load into the trunk or back of the vehicle. For clients and volunteer’s protection, if the trunk is full or does not work, clients are directed to a location where they load their groceries.
- Assembling, preparing, and pack 25 lb. Food boxes to be distributed in the drive-thru pantry.
- Sorting and packing Kroger Reclamation product into 15 lbs. boxes of assorted product for CDP’s and client pantry distribution.
*We welcome volunteers Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 11:30 am and 11:30 am to 2:30 pm*
*We also have shifts on the 1st and 3rd Saturday of each month, from 8:30 am to 12:30 pm*
The families and individuals we serve have been the most effected during the past year. Volunteer help is so appreciated during this time.
They can get a package of medicines or a discount on the medicines they need.
