To the News Enterprise:
Located in the town of Johnsburg, the Outreach Center runs or houses multiple programs to assist community members. Its two largest programs, run entirely by volunteers, are the Family Clothing Center and the Johnsburg Food Pantry.
Because there is no paid staff for these programs, having enough volunteers is critical to keeping the programs running. Currently, there is a need for volunteers in both programs.
For the Clothing Center, volunteers are needed on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. to assist shoppers as well as to sort and display clothing. Volunteers do not need to work every Saturday. Even one Saturday each month would be very helpful. People interested in volunteering for the Clothing Center should contact Charlotte Linke at 251 5230.
For the Food Pantry, in order to maintain the ability to continue being open in the evenings, volunteers are needed for the second and/or fourth Tuesday of each month from 4:45 to 7:15 p.m. to assist with the distribution of food. Also needed is someone to take cardboard to the town Transfer Station once or twice each month. Volunteers for Food Pantry should contact Anita Abrams at 251-2138.
Work in both of these programs is both fun and rewarding.
