We Love our Volunteers!
What Does it Mean to Volunteer at FROM?
FROM relies on volunteers in all parts of our organization. We have volunteers that answer the phone, help in our programs and run Treasures Thrift Shop. We love our volunteers and couldn’t help as many of our neighbors in need without them.
In fact, FROM was founded by volunteers and the organization didn’t have any paid staff for the first 10 years. Even though we have grown and expanded to better serve our community, we still rely on volunteers.
We are blessed to have over 300 volunteers donate their time at FROM each year, but we always have have open volunteer positions.
How Can I Volunteer at FROM?
Everyone who volunteers at FROM first attends a Volunteer Orientation.
Volunteer Orientations are a time to learn more about FROM, hear about open positions and see if volunteering at FROM is a good fit for you. Want to find out more? Check out our Current Volunteer Needs below and then attend an upcoming Volunteer Orientation!
