Volunteers Needed!


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! We are in need of volunteers for our Cocoa location. We have volunteer opportunies in our Food Pantry on Mondays and our Thrift Stores in Cocoa at 113 Auroa Street and at our Merritt Island Thrift Store located at 172 E. Merritt Island Causeway (right across from the Olive Garden). Hours are flexible and no experience is necessary. If you find yourself with some spare time on your hands we’d love for you to join our team of volunteers. 100% of the proceeds from our Thrift Stores helps fund our Basic Needs Programs.
