RUBY'S PANTRY VOLUNTEERS

Volunteers - we look forward to seeing you on September 18. 


Volunteering  is a great way to show the people of your community that you care and we  are so thankful for everyone who volunteers here at Ruby's.  You volunteers are the hands and feet of Jesus, and your service is what makes this pantry a great success! THANK YOU!

We welcome more volunteers to join us in serving our guests following the CDC guidelines.  Please consider volunteering in September. 

Ask your friends or neighbors if they would like to help serve the community with you.  Join us on Saturday, September 18.


We are looking for 50+ volunteers.  We continue to follow the CDC guidelines  and have a health screening process that we are asking volunteers to go through.  If you are in the "at risk" category, please consider the risk and then decide if you want to help… we want you safe and healthy! Your health is important to us and so is the health of others. 


Please read these  guidelines:

● If you are sick or have any abnormal symptoms on Saturday, September 18  -     PLEASE STAY HOME!

● If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have a family member who was exposed within the last 10 days - PLEASE STAY HOME!

● We will have PPE and hand sanitizer available for use.

● We continue to follow the CDC guidelines.  There will be times due to the nature of the work that you will be working with others and social distancing will be more difficult. Please use your best judgement. 

● There are time slots where we are asking people to serve. They are listed below.  Be ready to work when you arrive.


Time slots where volunteers are needed:

● 6:00 – 7:00 am | Unload truck and sort pallets
