We Love Our Volunteers!
Are you skilled at customer service? Do you have a friendly face and love to greet people? Have you always wanted to volunteer, but aren’t sure where or how? Are you able and willing to lift, sort, and price items? Do you want to make a difference in your community wherever your skills can be used to make a difference? Then we need YOU!
Flat River Outreach Ministries (FROM) would not exist without a team of amazing volunteers. Over 300 people volunteer their time and talents at FROM. In 2017, over 348 dedicated FROM volunteers provided over 41,000 volunteer hours!
We rely on volunteers to operate Treasures Thrift Shop, run our programs, and help us walk alongside our neighbors in need.
We have a great group of volunteers, but are always in need of additional volunteers to help meet new needs, and assist in current areas. We offer opportunities for individuals or groups, one time or ongoing during the day, evening, and even weekend hours.
- Cashiering in Treasures Thrift Shop
- Sorting and pricing of Treasures Thrift Shop items
- Stocking, organizing, and staffing the Food Pantry
- Answering the phones and greeting those who come in the door
- Stuffing envelopes and sending mailings
- Helping children shop for food during school breaks through our Lunch Buddies program
- Keeping the buildings and grounds clean
- Providing tax help
- Volunteering during seasonal programs (like Christmas, Backpacks, etc.)

Volunteer Orientation and Training
All volunteers must first attend a 1 hour Volunteer Orientation to gain additional information on our mission and vision, our commitment to our clients, confidentiality, and more. You’ll not only learn where you can best utilize your skills and talents, but also about the impact you can make in the lives of individual’s, families and, the entire Lowell-area community.
Volunteer Orientations are the first Wednesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. and the third Thursday of the month at 1:00 p.m. for a full list of upcoming Volunteer Orientation dates, please view our Calendar.
Please note that by attending a Volunteer Orientation you are not committing to volunteering, but are just finding out more about FROM and the opportunities that are available.
