Volunteering Has Changed!

While we are battling the pandemic, we have several changes to our volunteer program. We have suspended our monthly group orientations and trainings and are onboarding individuals on an as-needed basis. We still need volunteers in many program areas! Please contact Ann, our Volunteer Director, at ann@sistercarmen.org to get started.

Food Bank - Sister Carmen Community Center

Food Bank – Sister Carmen Community Center

We care about you!

We are asking that our volunteers use their best judgement about coming in to help. Your health is important to us. If you are at greater risk or don’t feel comfortable coming in, please stay home.

All volunteers are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 before November 8th, 2021.

Learn more about Sister Carmen’s COVID-19 response and mask policy here. 

We need Virtual Volunteers!

The need for food has increased substantially, and we need volunteers to host virtual food drives with their families, neighborhoods, clubs, or workplace. This kind of help is greatly needed, and can be done remotely!
